My surgeon is very good about answering questions. He doesn’t say much unless I talk and ask. Great at giving information though. Just this afternoon I noticed that a simple hamstring stretch completely relieves the pinching sensation. Perhaps it’s tightness and inflammation combined. I’ll know more on Friday.Will be looking forward to good news after your 6 - week follow-up.
I too have bouts of swelling. Yesterday, it was particularly swollen (spent all day in office chair), and last night I did "legs on wall" and more icing. Thus far today, swelling is almost not noticeable. While there is a correlation if I sit too long, it also seems like some days are just better than others as it relates to swelling.
I hope the issue from seating to standing is explained by your surgeon.
Another chance to learn a new skill. This one like patience is a difficult one to learn and practice. When feeling good you just keep going because you can and it is such a treat. Just try to monitor yourself better and maybe keep a log and scale back for a while and then advance your activities more gradually.I need to find a balance between doing too much and doing too little. I’m not very good at judging that.
