leg wont bend past 45 degrees
« on: November 25, 2011, 03:46:41 PM »
Hi i am five months in after snapping my tendon and one month ago had wiring removed.  Physio worried as knee wont bend past 45 degrees. They said another op to manipulate knee is needed.  Saw fracture clinic today and they said no as tendon will snap and there is nothing they can do.  Problem is i am working from home as cant get to work but i could lose it if continues and if physio is not working what is the alternative?  Any advice appreciated Steve

Hi Steve

You are posting on the wrong thread - repost again on ...

I thnik that a second opinion is required, as you cannot live with a 45 ROM

How did you sustain your injury?

Where do you live?

Keep posting

Take care
