WILL IT EVER END????? Saw the surgeon at 6 months (last month) and he tells me if I do new exercises I will notice a big difference . Maybe not so much tourniqueting. Nothing major. Still afraid going downstairs. Numbness, pain. I had to go to the hospital 2 days ago to get an MRI of my non TKR Achilles tendon checked for a tear. Just what I need now. I get results tomorrow. They put me in a wheelchair as it was quite a long walk to the MRI wing. When they brought me back to the parking garage they didn't get the TKR foot rest moved all the way back and when I stood up I tripped on it falling forward. If it hadn't been for a door jamb and hand rail I would have been on the floor. I didn't hit my knee but must have jarred it. I was so shook up I couldn't find my car and walked around for 10 minutes looking for it. It has been in a tight tourniquet state since then. I haven;t exercised it till today just iced it. Lots of clicking. I am afraid I may have really messed up the tracking. I see the surgeon next week. Should I call the surgeon, wait till after I see if I have torn my Achilles tendon or wait till i see him next week? I see the PT this Wednesday. I am beside myself.
