I’ve been on this site many a times during my recovery for Ltkr on March 26/2018. I’ve had a hard time thus far thinking I would be past where I’m currently at. I was released from my surgeon to go back to work. Started back yesterday ( I’m a retail banker) They have accommodated me with a chair but I work in a position that I’m more up than down. During the first month of post visits with my surgeon he said several times that most patients are past the pain , something I still had. He made me feel like there was something wrong with me. He referred me to a pain specialist. I’ve seen him 3 times now including my initial visit. The 3rd time was today after work. My ankle and knee both are swollen. This pain management doctor also said most people don’t have any problems or pain at my stage and suggested radio frequency genicular nerve ablation. Has anyone had this ? I cried in his office telling him that before the surgery I walked and felt better than I do now. When I initially went to my surgeon to have xrays done, he said both knees were bad, but wanted to start with the worse of the two. I have been favoring my ltkr and now my non operated knee is killing me. I’m a very outgoing and positive person generally but since this operation I am second guessing myself if I should have done it. I know we are all different in the healing process but I’m feeling desperate to get my old self back.
I’m sorry this is so long. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
