    MUA A little worried

    It was my PT who suggested the ankle weights.

    MUA A little worried

    I’m getting pulled everywhere by conflicting advice. In essence I really believe in the BoneSmart gentle recovery philosophy and can see it makes sense: working away at already damaged tissue can’t be a good thing. Yet I really want to see progress and the advice from surgeon and PT is exercise...

    MUA A little worried

    I had my six week consultation with the surgeon two weeks ago. I was very low with my bend realistically still around 65/70. He suggested MUA and, desperate to see some kind of progress, I succumbed. I had the procedure on Monday, spent a night on a CPM machine set at 100, had PT Tuesday morning...

    Thank you all.

    MUA A little worried

    Thanks all. I know I just want advice and reassurance. I’m feeling a bit low emotionally and that’s difficult for me to cope with. I was unfortunately brought up in a household where male vulnerability equates to weakness and problems are to be kept to yourself and never shared. I have broken...

    MUA A little worried

    I am certainly concerned that my constant icing and elevating isn’t having much effect. My knee hasn’t noticeably gone down more in the last two weeks.

    MUA A little worried

    Above is my operated left knee - four and a half weeks in. Still can’t get anywhere near 90 degree bend or full, flat extension. I’ve taken on board what I’ve been told on here and trying not to worry too much. Slightly concerned that my knee really juts out at an angle when I’m walking but...

    MUA A little worried

    Well it’s now four weeks since my LTKR and progress is slow. Since discovering BoneSmart I’ve tried hard not to worry about it but it still concerns me. I still cannot get more than about 70 degree bend in my knee from sitting position. After that it’s pain. Extension feels a little better and...

    MUA A little worried

    Thanks all. Yesterday, before I discovered BoneSmart, I came back from my physio appointment and really went through a range of hard and sometimes painful exercises to “get myself in line” after what had been said to me. The result was the most painful night since the op with not one minute’s...

    MUA A little worried

    Thank you. I really wish I’d found BoneSmart pre-op. Better late than never though.

    MUA A little worried

    Yes, maybe it’s me expecting too much too soon but the physio certainly told me I was off the pace in terms of recovery and that threw me. Perhaps, also, I wasn’t expecting to feel so emotionally low after the op. It’s my first major procedure and I’m just struggling a bit.

    MUA A little worried

    Hi, sorry to bother you all with this. Had a FKR just under three weeks ago and I know my rehab is behind the clock and this was confirmed at my first post op physio appointment today. Can’t straighten my leg and get nowhere near 90 degree bend. Have done all exercises but clearly need to do...
