Please don’t forget to give us the date, we’d like to update your signature.I'm 63 years old, and five weeks post-op TRKR.
I went to PT at the clinic four times before I decided I would be more comfortable doing it at home on my own. I try to walk a lot during the day, and I'm doing some of the exercises that I was taught. Mostly, I'm living my daily life, which includes stairs ... and typical housekeeping. I'm praying every day that these actions will keep me progressing as I heal.
It sounds like you're doing very well on your own and the activities of daily living should keep you comfortably mobile. You're not overdoing it and you're making good progress...so stay the course!I'm praying every day that these actions will keep me progressing as I heal.
You should have run from this therapist! This kind of PT causes excess pain and swelling, meaning its outcome is a setback in your recovery!When I mentioned to my therapist that it hurt, she said "Oh, I haven't even started to hurt you yet!"
Oh yes, you will recover much better doing it yourself than going to that therapist. Bad PT is worse than no PT. The thing is, you can do your own PT all by yourself and stay at home, not burn the gas, and not pay the copay. I did my own PT after each of my 12 knee surgeries and have ended up just fine!I decided I would be more comfortable doing it at home on my own.
