I can't lift my knee !!
« on: August 03, 2012, 10:54:36 PM »
I had mpfl surgery done on the 20th june, and both legs were operated on together. Unfortunately my left knee hasn't progressed like my right. My right is soo far on that if my left was the same I could walk without any aids. Although the left knee won't lift, I can't even lift my foot a few cms off the ground, bent or straight leg raises. I can bend it on a chair to around 100o. And on the bed around 75o as its more difficult lying down? But 44 days post op, is this right? I've no braces or anything just a zimmer frame as my balance is awful.

Any help whatsoever is very much appreciated!!
Thanks in advance!!
