My physio recommended I try cycling (stationary). As I'm still unable to fully rotate the pedals she said to go "forward and backwards", rotating them as far as I could until, eventually, I would be able to rotate fully.
All was going well until a few days back when my un-operated side foot slipped off the pedal which allowed the TKR side to fully rotate.
Well, ouch to say the least!! It killed (not literally obviously), but it hurt greatly may I say? After a few tears popped out, and much gnashing of teeth went on, my leg ached tremendeously for a while and swelled quite a lot. I immediately iced it and rested (and haven't been near the bike again).
My question is, could I have damaged it? Now the flex I'm able to do is less than before and the pain, while not too bad, is certainly a little more.
