Hi All, Help me out here.
I'm nearly 7 weeks post op TKR. Have contributed and read every post on this site and the advise has been so helpful.
I have not missed a day of PT and see my physiotherapist once a week. I walk x 2 (20mins), cycle x 3 (10-15 mins), exercise, ice and take painkillers.The pain is still quite harsh most of the time and I can only function with painkillers on board but I continue on. Last week my physiotherapist added ankle weights into my regime and I find that the pain is now worse. Thought at the start that it was just the addition that was making it so sore and I could work through it. But the pain is getting worse and sleepless nights are not helping.
Should I stop the weights?
Take a day off from everything (except stretching)?
What do you guys think?
