I had arthroscopic chondroplasty 12 days ago. A part of me is happy I got it done and the other part says why did you do this to yourself.
I started physcial therapy the day after. It was very light that day and as time went on I have done more. But I can't stand or walk without the immobilizer on. The therapist wanted me to take off the brace Friday and when I did I couldn't walk. I told her I have stairs and how do I get up them. She didn't work with me on that at all.
So when I got home, I had to crawl up my stairs to my room. The pain was so bad that my whole body was shaking. My doctor said that I should build up to work myself out of my brace.
I can't stand, or walk with out a brace. My muscles in my leg are so tight that it hurts to bend my knee. When I walk with crutches and no brace my leg drags and I can't step with it.
Will this get better, because I need this to get better. I am a mom and stuck in a bad place right now.
