Hi all. As I said in the title, both my knees are trashed. Been in a straight brace for a month. Last two weeks I've had 30 degrees movement in my braces but my legs only move about 20 degrees. I've mostly been lying in bed because I cant sit comfortably in any chair with my legs so straight. I have a two year old son who runs at me and pulls me and grabs crutches when I walk. It is very stressfull because I just cant fall or suddenly bend my legs.
In last couple of days I seem to have forgotten how to walk with the crutches. I stand up and feel like I can't move without falling over. I am getting to the point that I can barely cope with the few daily tasks I have to perform. I presume that this is psychological because of the stress I've been under, but what can I do??? The injury is bad enough without this terrible feeling. Help!
