Hi all - 1st time I've posted and looking for advice please before I lose my mind!
January 5th - something so simple, slipped getting into my car and twisted my knee really bad, fast forward to Feb 15th and Im having knee surgery for what turned out to be a double meniscus tear on a discoid meniscus (lateral). They repaired it.
Between January and up to the surgery I was unable to walk without my leg buckling, and I was only allowed to start weight bearing again only 1 week ago. My leg has wasted away considerably and its really tough trying to walk any kind of distance without a sharp pain in the knee (which is subsiding a bit now) and up the back of my hamstrings. I don't feel like I am making any progress at all, I used to be so active and would walk miles every day but I have been house bound for almost 3 months and I really need to get out.
I honestly thought that once I was able to start weight bearing again I would be able to at least get some strength back, at least enough to start walking decently again - I dunno is 1 week just too soon for me to be worrying about this? Does anyone have any tales or advice that they have had when trying to rehab the leg? I am attending physio once a week but I need some reassurance that I'm on the right track (I hope I am).
thanks all - hope you can help.
