Hi guys, well it's April 28th and I'm home. I was sent home 2 days ago and it's been horrendous I was in less pain in hospital than I am now. Why do they not send you home with Gabapentin as well because this is the only drug I was on in hospital that I'm not on now and the pain is much worse. I had a different physio who although tough was nice but the exercises they expect you to do are horrendous she managed to get me to an 89 degree bend but getting there was worse than childbirth I couldn't believe the pain and was in tears. Since I've got home I've been walking as much as I can which isn't a problem but the bending and lifting exercises are agony and there is no way I'm getting the bend and lift that she got in hospital in fact i can hardly lift my leg without support. I'm worried that I'm going to seize up because I can't do the exercises properly. I've been icing it and that's helped and take painkillers before I start but have any of you got any ideas to make the exercises less painful. I know I'm probably expecting a lot from myself but it's my mums funeral in 3 weeks and I want to be more mobile for that.
Thank you for your kind words of support.
