I am at the 5 month stage, have been doing all the usual exercises and have achieved a good ROM early on in my recovery, as a result. The physio pushed me hard often to the point of considerable pain in order to achieve a good bend early on. However I have never been without pain, particularly when standing / walking. Surgeon says X-ray looks good and that it's still healing. Now have just been told to rest up for 2 weeks and just ice / stretch as possibly have been doing too much. ( but never managed to walk more than 15 mins without pain.) it's so frustrating, and worrying.. Has anyone else experienced similar at this stage?
I was a fit and active 61 year old, and used to walk / gym etc.. Feels like my life is on hold, i try to stay positive in the hope that it will improve!
