I had surgery August 22nd, spent one night in the hospital and was released mid afternoon the next day. In the hospital I was praised for being up and using my walker (supervised) to the bathroom so soon. PT came and said I was doing amazing. OT signed off on me going home immediately. I’m home now and have been for about a day now. This is REALLY hard. I’m so used to doing everything myself that it drives me nuts to have my mom and boyfriend waiting on me. I really don’t have a lot of pain, I just feel a deep soreness and tightness, especially in the muscles behind my knee and my upper thigh area. A couple concerns: The hospital didn’t get me in my cpm machine until the day after surgery so worried that might set me back I was sent home in an immobilizer brace and told I have to wear it for 2 weeks... until my first post-op appointment. I’m not seeing many people having had one after. I’m worried it will hinder my movement because it keeps my leg straight. I don’t feel like I’m walking as well as others are at this point. Or maybe my expectations for myself are too high? I’ve been icing and doing my exercises 3 times a day as prescribed and using my cpm 3 times a day (I really like it because it shows me that my knee can bend just I don’t have the muscle control myself to do it yet. And most the time I’m able to catch a nap while using it.) My butt hurts, like hurts hurts. I’m so tired of sitting on it. What can I do?? Anyway thanks for listening guys.
