Don't ask, tell them:I'm going to request that it's a very simple PT, especially if this pain is still sticking around.
Yes, that is the one thing I don't want to do, is overdo it and start regressing on the numbers! I know the numbers will fluctuate some, but I'd like to keep it close to what it is now.Wow! Those numbers are very unusual for only 3 days. Be careful to not overdo and make those numbers worse. You know the deal and what to do. You'll do great!
Did he say to keep it totally straight? We have found that having a slight bend in the bend is much more comfortable than keeping it straight. A slight bend in it shouldn't pop it back open, but you should ask him first if it'd be OK. By the way, you won't lose your bend when you are released to bend again. It'll come right back.Keeping the leg straight is really annoying me after having it drilled into me that I should work on the flexion.
