I am10 weeks post op, my bend is getting better (100 or maybe a little over)-I may need manipulation; my straightening is good when lying down but still not 100%when standing; my walk is getting better and I use one crutch or none inside but two when I go out.
Have just bought an automatic car this morning which will hopefully arrive by the weekend so I can drive again and get back to work part time as of next week.
So everything is progressing however my knee still feels very heavy and tight and is driving me more than mad as it feels like it is being literally crushed in a vice from either side of my knee /like the knee cap is being suctioned!
My GP has prescribed anti depressants to help me cope with it and she tells me it is the healing process in action but at my review four weeks ago I was told it was nerve pain. I have looked up nerve pain and what I feel does not tally.
I have mentioned this before and I know that lots of you have stiff or tight knees but has or is anyone else getting this feeling please and what has helped?
I do my exercises including the bike, I use a water bottles, elevation and small walks but nothing helps it.
Any advice would so appreciated, thanks, Tracey
