Swelling goes down slowly - for some people it takes months to disappear.Still swollen, despite icing, elevating, and only gentle stretching.
That's a good idea. There's little point in working on Range of Motion (ROM), which won't improve much until a bit more swelling has gone.Tomorrow I will ask my PT to focus on the swelling.
Keep doing what you are doing and give it time - sounds like you are in total control and that’s good - just miss a few outpatient appointment ms to give the swelling time to go downThank you @Sisterpat for your support. Sometimes it is so hard to hold the line and do what is right for your own body. Even the x-ray tech said something about my needing to work harder on my flex. Before the surgery, I spent more than an hour a day on strength training and cardio — I am not lazy!
