Hi everyone I had my op on 25 March. To say I was not prepared for how painful this procedure would be is an understatement. Those first few weeks were really tough and I don’t think I’ve cried so much but thankfully those days are behind me now. I am so thankful that I found this wonderful site, it has been a life saver, both in terms of my mental health (during the post op blues) and for all the hints and tips - I don’t feel like I’m on my own. Now at 14 weeks I feel stronger but my patience is wearing thin. I just want to feel normal! My knee constantly feels tight under the knee cap and on some days the muscles above and below my knee are really sore. I am managing to walk 2½ miles but that’s about it at the moment. At night it feels really heavy and I am aware of it when I try to move around. I’m only taking paracetamol and ibuprofen when needed and massage and cream my scar everyday and the hypersensitivity is nearly gone thank goodness. I’m hoping that the knee pain will eventually go over the coming months and I’m trying not to worry about improving my ROM 115/0. Am I expecting too much at this point in time to want my knee back to normal?
