Hi everyone, I had my 6 week check up on Thursday. I was dreading it as I knew I was not at full extension and about 95 degree bend. The surgeon did not seem worried by the fact that I was still -5 and only 95 ROM. He said it was early days and I will get there. I suppose I should be thankful that he did not put any pressure on! Anyway, is this normal? I was extremely fit before operation and had full use of leg right up to day of op so I had expected a quick speedy recovery. I have really struggled and only feel that in the last week I am getting somewhere. I am not allowed to give up my crutches at the moment and have been told I can drive and ride horses when I feel ready which I know will still be a few weeks. Has anyone been at these levels at 6 weeks and now have a good ROM? I suppose I am regretting my decision to operate and need reassurance.
I must say that without this group I think I would have given up by now!!
