at 8 months i am having some concerns that i did not do ample therapy and exercises after my surgery. i live hours away from my surgeon in a third world country, so basically have been doing things on my own. saw him a few times and he saw recent xrays and stated that everything is fine. perhaps i did not understand totally what he was recommending as for not completely fluent in spanish and medical terms non existant. was instructed to continue with things as i used to, including construction as pain and range of movement would allow. went off medication a few weeks ago and take only when in real pain, but i must say that there is pain when i walk. i limp quite a bit. i walk a couple of kms a day though. now the real question.......has my lack of proper therapy exercises greatly affected my recovery? i read last night about scar tissue preventing being able to extend my leg straight and bending more than 90 degrees. the internet vid gave demonstrations of comparing good and bad legs straight. i was shocked how different they are. i know i was absent on doing the shown exercises, i was just doing standing squats and a lot of stair climbing, but not any stretches to build up my quads or muscles.i have always rebounded from any sports injury much faster than anyone. oh, i am 62, but very active. today i have started on new exercizes i located on the net, preforming 5 times a day would be my plan. thanks for any recommendations!
