I love the fact I can come on here, have a bit of a panic and get some sage advice.
Catherine - other than the numbness the knee doesn't feel too. I'm not really taking any pain meds at all apart from at night and I can weight bare and do a couple of steps without crutches (wearing my brace), I feel this is ok for 2 1/2 weeks into recovery. I expect the pain to increase again when I start PT though.
Tiggs - the numbness is pretty widespread at the moment, it feels bizzare!
I'm getting used to cleaning the wound an putting vasaline (what the nurse recommended)
Oh, another question! Did anyone else have a hugely bruised ankle? Mine at time has been more painful than the knee, it was quite sollen but now the bruising has come out it has gone down and is just bruised!!
Wishing you all pain-free day.
