@Celle: I understand what you are saying. I was on my feet today for 1 hr (browsing in a book store). Knee got very tight. Came home, iced, elevated for 5 hrs...and I can barely bend my knee. If the past holds, it will take 2 add’l days of being in the recliner most of the day, icing and elevating, for it to go back to being able to bend and not being tight. This gets repeated day after day w/no progress (I’m NOT seeing that I can be on my feet for a little longer each week before it gets tight.) Is this normal? I’m frustrated bc I see only temporary, limited relief by icing/elevating, and my dr and PT have offered nothing as to what else I can do to get better (except rigorous exercises (squats, leg press etc) that I’m not doing til I feel better. If I saw ANY progress I’d feel so much better. Anyway...I’d appreciate any add’l thoughts and then I’ll take a break from posting...feel like I’m complaining abt the same thing every time. Tks in advance and Tks for your patience.
