I had a RTKR on 16th December and was really struggling with the bend due to a massive build up of scar tissue from this and previous surgeries. Therefore I had an MUA on Saturday. Straight after the procedure the bend was fantastic and I went on the CPM and managed to get 110 degrees bend. I was discharged the same day.
i woke up on Sunday with everything hurting and feeling very low and couldn't stop crying. I am now struggling with getting my bend back, I seem to have gone backwards :-( My quad muscles are very tight and painful. I am persevering with my exercises every hour but I am getting very frustrated. I have physio tonight and I am dreading it!
i asked the hospital if I could borrow a CPM machine but they don't let them out of the hospital. I have researched if I can hire one but it's going to cost approx £250+ a week!
Well..... That's me! Sorry it's a bit long-winded, I guess I just wanted to vent to somebody who totally understands and to possibly gain a little advice :-)
