Taped up Knee

Posted , 10 users are following.

Hi all TNR 5.3.15.First physio today because of horrendous tight band on walking??? Well hes not sure what it is but my knee doesn't go flat to the bed and cant push it down when he puts his hand under?? He said its still very swollen and fluidy so ive to start anti inflammatorys straight away!!!! He said it could be my knee cap pressing and causing pressure??? So as an experiment hes pushed my knee cap up yikes and taped it with some EXTRA strong tape. NO exercising and to sit with it out not pulled back like the exercises??? I go back fri so back to no baths til fri lol. Must say I havent had that horrible tightness since he did it but hell I still feel sick from the pain he put me through lol.

    that sounds really horrific! ย First physo after more than three months sounds like a bad idea! ย Mine didn't go flat until all the swelling was gone, which was probably about four months. . .hope he knows what he is doing! ย Definitely a moment for chocolate!
