Hi all, am new to this. I am 50 and had TKR 4 weeks ago after suffering for 25 years following sports injury and subsequent knee reconstruction. Have done really well since op, d/c from physio at 2 weeks with 1 stick and a programme of exercises which I have religiously followed at home. On Sunday, slipped down 4 steps at home and bent knee completely underneath my butt (which had not happened for 25 years). Excruciating pain and hubbie had to call ambulance. I was terrified I'd damaged TKR but x-ray showed I'd been incredibly lucky and joint intact and soft tissue damage. A&E doc said rest for 1 week then restart exercising. I've been re-referred to physio but don't know if I should see them this or next week as although pain and stiffness worse since accident, I don't want to fall behind. Any advice? I feel I've lost confidence. Thank you.
