It's not school or a job so there's no grade or pay cut for lack of effort. You have to look at what your goals are.I have my first outpatients appointment with the physio at the hospital on Friday - I'm not looking forward to that as I've felt too sore to exercise much since last Wednesday and I think they might not approve of my lack of effort !
Have you a catch up session arranged with the physio to see how you are progressing ?I can feel them- ache/burn but successfully complete them. Completing 2 rounds not trying 3 yet. Second round I feel them more while completing them. I shudder at the thought of lunges.
The bruise at the back of my knee didn't bother me pain wise and I only knew about it as my husband saw it. But the ache with my knee is all over the front of the knee cap and the front thigh muscles are now feeling stiff and aching as well. I'm sure it's all a knock on effect of the op and also not helped by the stilted way I'm moving. Low level aches and pain I'm fairly laid back about, it's when the pain is sharp and intense that I worry.How funny, I also have a sore knee - it was bruised after surgery which I didn’t immediately notice but this week it’s become more achy.
I guess I've just stuck around here a while. It really should be big dummy for all of the overdids I've done and still do.@Eman85 You are so right ! I don't know why I worry so much about what other people think of me. My goal is to walk freely without pain and have a good range of movement, and if that takes me a bit longer than others, so be it.
Btw, I'm really curious, what does a 'big cheese' mean ?
