So I had my replacement 3 weeks ago yesterday & this group has certainly helped to keep me going! I had my 1st physio appt on Thursday, and she was really not happy that I only had a 55 degree bend (even said she was surprised I had come out of hospital with anything less than 90). By the time I left I was at 65 & I have been trying& stressing so much to achieve more since then. BUT I'm in agony!!! Internally. I have to go back on Tuesday and am so worried that it might not have improved enough. My leg is like a lead weight, and whilst walking is getting better (even around the house without my crutches), lying down is soooo difficult to get comfy. I cannot do the leg raise at all & have to use my elastic to help. I'm so tired to because of all this! I regularly take my meds and ice pack at least once an hour. Anyone know of anything else I could try please?? Thanks
