Hello all. I am one day off 6 weeks now. My bend at the physio on friday was 80 which he was pleased with, an increase of 5 from the previous week. I was able to lift my leg off the bed for the first time which had eluded me so far so was pleased with that. However i still find it very hard to sit in one position downstairs in the lounge and have to keep coming back to bed to get some peace from my restless leg. Exercises are going ok but the frequent unexpected pains make me nervous. I think that i havent really accepted my new knee as part of my body! Sleep is improvingwhich helps a lot but my life is still very far from normal. It seems very far away right now still. Also i am due to stop wearing the dreaded stockings but i worry that my leg will swell up as it has before when i left them off. My scar has a small area that is still weeping mostly i feel because of wearing the stockings i have had to cover it. Hope it starts to improve soon!
