Hello everyone. I had RTKR on 8th Jan, ( in UK) no idea what to expect, but I've found these forums really helpful, so thank you.
My problem is the knee bend/slide, my knee feels like it has a band around it preventing it from bending. I think I managed 70 degrees at my 2 week physio appointment....... and it was a struggle! So she's arranging some extra sessions for me.
I had a set back the day after surgery due to low blood pressure mainly.... passed out, threw up, not a good day. As a result I had no physio and no real out of bed time until I came home 3 days later; so I felt a bit behind.
I cant lift my leg either so I'm working on that. I use my 'good' leg to hook under.
I do my rest and ice, exercises, have a wander around the house on my crutches, put my leg back up. Basically, I do what feels OK because I had no advice on daily routine, I guess as is clear reading your posts, thats because were all different. But I do wonder sometimes if I should be doing more?
Any ideas on how to get this knee to bend and lift would be great 😃
