Ok, just checking doing heelslides and for some reason knee has been off all day with some stiffness and pain but I am still going to do heel slides cause I need to but it’s painful today. Normal right?

    My Physio said stretching / stiff type pain is ok but not sharp pain. I’m doing heal slides now and I’ve completely stiffened up since yesterday. But that could be the dancing last night!!

      Dancing! How wonderful smile I can go a couple of hours without doing heel slides and it’s like starting over with stiffness although it gives a litt quicker than first try of the day stiffness. Yesterday such a hard day today seems to be a bit better not a sore as yesterday overall. 

      Shooting type pain sometimes occur from inside of knee during tighter pull but not necessarily a sharp pain just a pain but I think all is still good. Sleeping with lots of pillow support for leg so useful. LOL 

      Thanks! Keep dancing smile

      Yes it’s all progress smile it’s wonderful you felt good enough to get out there. Sometimes my energy is still lower than I would like. But that will improve I am sure

    Ouch! Don't do the heal slides till they hurt! Bad. You could be causing damage. It should feel tight, but NOT painful. You're doing it too hard. Be gentle and you'll get there. It just takes time! Good luck healing!

      Thanks Renee! I think for me the tight is painful for me kinda lol I am trying to be gentle but pushing just a bit to gain some ground. Then I massage knee around the scar staying clear of it. I am finding heel slides are helping me not have swelling like walking and other activities can cause. I did a bit too much waling today but pain is doable and infrequent
