I was beginning to seriously think my husband had made a mistake when he'd told me I'd got to 133 on the bend quite a few days ago because it seemed to drop to 128 and then gradually up to 130 again but for a couple of days or so I couldn't push it more than that. Then last night found I could! It's the same method - sit as far back in one corner of the recliner chair, with raised bottom, bring foot up so bend is as tight as possible and foot is against base of arm of chair and then lower bottom into chair - it just gives a bit extra push to it. It's a bit uncomfortable, but I sit like that for five or 10 minutes, then stretch leg out for about 10 or 20 minutes and then repeat. I do this every evening between 9 and 11 pm. I broke through the plateau! I got to 135 (and he did check it twice LOL!) last night. At 7 and a half weeks, I'm very happy with this and think I might be on course for reaching 140 in a few weeks, but in the meantime, if it doesn't bend more, and I only keep this, then I'm good! What my physio didn't really tell me, is if I need to keep doing this or will it go backwards again? And just how long do you need to keep doing it? Weeks? Months?
