So, 14 weeks on from new knee cap and metal trochlea and I've had two days this week when the tightness seemed to be getting a little better.......until yesterday! I was out at a garden centre and pushing (more like clinging on for dear life) a trolley. Nothing heavy in it, just a couple of small plants. Had lunch outside in the lovely weather and came home. A couple of hours later my knee was very painful, tight and the pain was all around my knee cap. I took extra strength painkillers, iced and elevated. When it came to bedtime I couldnt pick my leg up off the floor to get it into bed, it was so painful, and even turning over in bed has been a nightmare during the night. This morning my knee is very stiff, a bit swollen and is painful on the outside of my leg up to my thigh.
Could it just be the heat, in my friends car the sun was very hot on both my legs (I did have linen trousers on so scar was covered), did I just do too much in pushing the trolley, could I be dehydrated......lots of questions going through my mind. Anyone out there experienced anything similar? Am going to rest up today and watch tv.......is there any tennis on anywhere lol?
