So I am now into Month 7 and my left knee is actually worse than before the surgery. My insurance has cut my PT off. I went for an MRI last Wednesday on my right ankle. I have a partial tear of my Achilles Tendon. I was so far from the parking garage they took me down to the garage in a wheelchair . We got to the garage I got up , tripped and I fell into the door jamb and clung to it. It happened so fast. I was able to walk back to my car. My podiatrist said I had to stop using the NuStep. In 4 days my knee is no longer the horrible traction pain it was it is now traction2 !!! My knee is hard and swollen, now the right side of the knee hurts too along with the knee and 2" rectangle area 6" long.
The podiatrist either wants a cast or something that goes over my shoe. (if that won't make me a fall risk I don't know what will) But as for today I have nothing on it and it hurts too. The surgeon wants to get a look at the MRI CD. Wonder what HE will want to do??? Wonder if the tendon ripped when I tripped? Just so sick and tired of being in pain and tired of having a surgeon that doesn't care and won't prescribe any pain meds at all. I am still doing the exercises, they don't hurt too much but after my knee really hurts.
Hope everyone is feeling better, healing with less pain and healing quicker.
