Valgriff2, be gentle on yourself. It's not a race. You just need to take each day as a step at a time. Big hugs to you.
Why did you let her do this? Most OS don't expect 90 degrees until at least 6 weeks. Run from the therapist. She is causing you more harm than good. Your knee is an infant and extremely traumatized. It is not out of shape, it is wounded and injured and needs to heal.T insisted today that I reach 90°bend. I actually yelled but she told me she had to do it. Boy that hurt.
I had this same problem. I still get some sore spots, but the extreme sensitivity passed after a few weeks. My legs were much more swollen then, which probably caused the tenderness. Ice and elevate your leg. I found if I gently massaged my legs while they were elevated, that seemed to help.Also....my skin on my shin and calf is so sensitive. Any suggestions?
I believe formal PT is unnecessary for many patients, that using the knee in my daily activities is perfect for it's recovery. Many favor going to PT and have found that gentle movements, massage, working on reducing swelling, and aiming toward a correct gait is working for them.Just wondering what the general consensus on PT is...
