Quad/hip flexor shutdown after surgery...how long??
« on: February 23, 2013, 12:32:00 AM »
You'd think I'd remember this from the first few surgeries...

If you lost hip and quad control after knee surgery, how long did it take to regain it? The problem is related to nerve impulses rather than atrophy; I'm not worried about full strength at this point, just getting really tired of heaving around a dead leg. (I'm in PT already and doing what I should, and while I can flex the muscles in question, they can't give me even a millimeter of lift.)
