I had my left knee replaced on may 17. I had in home therapy. I was walking outside with a cane or nothing in 9 days.Then on June 20 th ( my 29th wedding anniversary )had my right knee replaced.
On the second day in the hospital I got up went to therapy but there was one problem I could not even move my right foot 1 inch up and my foot laying down dropped to the right side. No one seemed to understand my concern I was sent home in 3 days started therapy outside the home. I had a very difficult time moving my leg.. I can pull back my leg at 90°.I to see my doctor and he told me that he would like to see more range of movement in that leg or he will manipulate my leg in the hospital under anesthesia which I'm not very happy about because I would like to go to work by September 1st. But now I have a problem in my left leg I have pins and needles burning sensation from my left outer thigh to my knee on my right leg which is the most recent knee done . I have tightness around the knee joint with pain . I bicycle everyday 20 minutes I walk 6 blocks, I do stretching, I do knee bends and knee stretches and I ice so much. I 'm in so much pain and that 5 milligram of Oxycontin doesn't do much I was wondering am I reacting irrational about not feeling good I've been very depressed, sad, crying, lonely to the point I just wish my life would end really don't want it to end I just can't take the way I am feeling. Does anyone have any suggestions.
