I had surgery on Feb. 0,2018. The surgery went well and I was home the next day, and the following week I started in home physical therapy for the first two weeks. I just completed my 4th session of pt today in a very good facility. But since I've been going to therapy I've seen several people that had surgery within in the past three weeks and hey are doing a lot better than I am as for as being able to bend my knee, and this is really affecting me mentally,
I'm doing doing the exercises and home, I'm not just sitting around, I moving around, doing little things around the house, driving short distances. Because my knee is not bending its hard getting in and out of the car. and just trying to do as much as I can doing the day. The pain is not that bad and I'm try not to take them so much being they are affecting my stomach.
I have an appointment with the Doctor on the 26 of this month, but in the meaning time I am really becoming a bit concerned.
I am a pr-k teacher and I was planning on going back to work after Spring break next month but right now I am not sure that I may be able to.
I'm going to be 59 in May, I have always been active, I not overweight, I 5'8 and again very active.
My friends says that people heal different because of several reasons. It is really frustrating because I feel like I working to get better and its not happening. I still have swelling and some pain which sometimes is tolaraterable sometimes not.
I just want to know has and or is anyone experiencing this amount of stiffness besides me.
