Hi guys and gals,
I had a UKR (Partial right knee replacement) on 6 Nov. Sent home on 9 Nov and progressed into rehab which has been fine ( but really demanding) and yesterday saw my Orthopaedic Consultant. He’s happy, more exercises for quite some time into the future; no crutches around the house, 1 crutch (as required) for up to 2 weeks maximum, can drive my car immediately I’ve done an emergency stop and back to work driving a bus at end of January.
Prior to UKR surgery and going back for several years I’ve had a right Sacriilliac (Si) Joint problem usually managed successfully by Osteopathy to the point that right up until surgery I’ve been free of pain/discomfort. However, in the last 10 days the Si joint pain has returned. I am sure this has returned as a result of a number of things; 1) many of the rehab exercises and stretches which have aggravated the si joint, 2) walking for 7 weeks with crutches, bad sleeping position as a result of surgery and now walking solo with a slight limp. The offending exercises/stretches have been discontinued and the only ones I maintain now with agreement of consultant are flexion and extension exercises for the new joint.
After new year I shall return to Osteo for manipulation but meanwhile I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this or similar and how you dealt with it.
