Hi, I am home and I just woke up and have the Cryocuff on and hoping the pain and heat will calm down ... The dubious joys of the small hours.
hydrotherapy this morning ... A harder session and can achieve a 90 degree bend on the pool steps. Also about 85 degrees on dry land, full leg extension no problem, stairs tiring but no problem, walking pretty well and today more able yo raise the leg up off the bed which is the thing I find most difficult.
Very encouaging but after only four days of course the heat, swelling, tightness and variety of pain is not much fun. My sciatica is really playing up and worrying me as it was finally easing since my lumbar fusion seven months ago. I am now experimenting either cushions, pillows etc to raise the leg on without also aggravating my back ... Hope I can get back yo sleep soon!
