MUA update

Posted , 10 users are following.

Had an MUA on the 12th April and was making good progress until I was taken ill with gastroenteritis and became an dehydrated that I was admitted to hospital.

My last physio was on the 21st April and my rom was 105, I'm pleased to say that after nearly 2wks of just very mild excersing my rom is now 115, my physiotherapist has reduced my appointments to just once a wk from today, to say I'm a happy little bunny is an understatement,

      I wish I could say all is well. My Dr pulled me from pt for 2 day my knee was so swollen I couldn't bend it on Monday. Friday I was 101. It was so painful over the weekend. Did my pt the best I could. Monday I was 40! Did my exercises yesterday morning and went to pt I was 65. The pt person I go to jams my knee. I know it needs to be aggressive but he goes over the top. My dr wants my knee to settle down and I can continue pt on friday. I do see my Dr tomorrow.

      Awe bless you linlee, you were doing so good aswell, try not to let it get to you, I have just proved it that even without the torture our physiotherapists put us through we can still go forward.

      Keep me updated on your recovery

      Hi Linlee.  I'm in the same situation...My swelling is crazy and it is so painful that I haven;t been able to do anything.  I've been to PT 3x now, but I'm so limited because of the swelling.  I go to the Dr tomorrow.  I'm hoping that it settles down so I can progress.  I bought a portable electric stimulator (TENS) unit & am hoping that helps.  Let me know what the Dr says.  Good luck!

    Really pleased for you Glynis.

    I think yours is the first happy ending to a MUA that I have seen, which pleases me as I may be on the cards for one!

    I hope your recovery continues so well

      Hi Tricia, please don't worry about having an MUA, it's not as painful as you would expect and as for pain relief I only took them for 2days, don't even take them when I have my physio, but I still elevate & ice at least 4 times a day xx
