TTO advise please
« on: September 28, 2014, 03:49:21 PM »
Hi,
I had a Tto, an mpfl reconstruction and micro fracture 6 days ago, but I'm struggling to be able to lift my leg, my physio has given me some exercises but I'm unable to do any that involve lifting my leg, I'm in a brace which is 0-90 degrees,
Any advise welcome
Thanks emma

Hi!
Don't worry about not being able to lift your leg up yet! 6 days post op is still very early.  I wasn't able to lift my leg on my own either, so what I did was wrapped a belt or blanket around my foot and kinda helped my leg up. You can also ask a family member or friend to help you. Do a TON of quad sets during the day! That should help get your quads firing again!
Hang in there! You're almost through the worst of it!
