I'm going on week 3 out of knee surgery. I had patellofemeral ligament reconstruction. Prior to surgery I was told that total recovery time would be 3 months but that I would be back to work in 1-2 weeks. I assumed that meant I would be pretty much healed and back to normal for the most part. Well like I said before, I'm going on week 3 and I still cannot walk, I'm still in pain & I am not able to return to work yet. I'm feeling very overwhelmed and depressed. I didn't have any PTO or vacation time available to take so every day I am off of work, it is without pay. I prepared a little prior to surgery but I didn't intend on more than a week or so really so I'm starting to worry. Also, I do not work a position where I am able to sit so that becomes a problem when I am released to return to work. I talked to my boss about it and asked if there would be something I could do for awhile and he didn't act like they would be able to accommodate me. Being out of work, being in pain still and not being able to walk is all starting to really get to me. I'm feeling very hopeless. I'm currently having to rely on my boyfriend and Mother to help with daily living. I am a very independent person so this is really hard for me. I continue to pray for God to give me some direction. Some words of encouragement or advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
