All the same excersizes with even more pain. I don’t feel as if I am making any progress. It feels like a waste of time. I do everything tie therapists say and it hurts as I am doing it, it hurts even worse when I get out.
My surgeon told me that this was going to hurt. He said I would not feel any relief from it. It was just to get the muscles moving and to keep the nerve from getting stuck in place. I don’t understand that, but it us what the therapist said could possibly happen. At the end of each session I go home and relax, sit down until it hurts and move until it hurts. It only seems to exascerbate the problem.
I realize it us going to be a long healing process, but I feel worse now than I did before the surgery. I am still falling between 5 and 15 times a day. The right leg just gives out and I hit the ground, I believe they call it a drop knee. That was supposed to stop happening. I an waiting on a new brace that will lock when I put my foot down and unlock when I bend the knee. It should eliminate the falling.
No person should have to live like this. The pain at times is debilitating. It is constant pain in the back, the leg, right leg mostly, hips, butte cheeks, foot and it gets really bad in the toes sometimes. It severely limits what I am able to do, my family has to put on my shoes and socks. I am only 38 years old, this is not a life I am looking forward to.
