Hi…. This was me two months ago. I was so anxious with all the talk from therapists about where my ROM should be. I was given good advice on this forum and so I’m going to give it to you. - Trust your instincts- if it hurts don’t do it. It will all come right. Believe me….. I was wracked with anxiety. Don’t stress…. Let your knee heal in it’s own time.I do feel better after PT don't get me wrong. I feel loosen up and stronger I just dread when they want to measure how far I can bend. I get anxiety about it and I think tense up worse.
Congratulations! Just be careful not to push too hard. I was feeling great and walked 20 minutes in my yard a few evenings ago, after doing PT. Boy did I pay for it that night with severe pain.I went to PT today and I'm so happy with my progress. I got 100 degree bend. Monday was 97 and today 100 yes!!! I got on a bike machine and was almost able to go all the way around. I'm able to go from sitting to standing with using my surgery leg with little to no pain. I was able to lift myself up stairs with little to no pain. The swelling is very minimal. I'm excited
