Well here we are, exactly one month today. My husband said it couldn't be a month because I had my surgery on a Monday. Errr, yes, but there's more than 28 days in January The past 2 days the knee has been quite swollen and uncomfortable, especially behind the knee. It all feels quite tight. My fault really. Prior to surgery I had a morning routine of around 30 mins exercise and stretches for my back and hip (degeneration of the spine, lumbar scoliosis and gluteal tendonopathy) that kind of kept my back going and I felt I really needed to do some. Pleased to say I got on and off the floor ok and did the routine I could do on my back. One of my exercises was shoulder bridges, which are also on the list of knee exercises from the hospital, so thought I'd give them a try. It was the highest degree of uncomfortable before I'd classify it as pain, but it didn't take long after for the knee to object, so I've been elevating and icing since and laid off the exercises. The night before last was really uncomfortable in bed and the knee was very stiff when I woke up so last night I thought I'd try the clingfilm wrap. I still have a couple of small scabs on my scar so haven't begun to use creams or oils yet so used the kitchen towel instead. I woke a couple of times in the night, but there was no nagging ache behind the knee, which usually bothers me, and this morning the swelling had gone down and knee was far more flexible than it usually is first thing Shortly after I took the wrap off the ache returned, but nowhere near as bad. It still feels very tight behind the knee though. I'm doing some calf and hamstring stretches to try to ease it,but has anyone else got any tips?
