Bad news from Physio...
« on: April 20, 2004, 07:18:37 PM »
I've been released from my OS, who is very happy with my progress, however, my PT has informed me that my knee will probably not be able to straighten past 20 degrees.

As I'm only partial weight bearing, I'm still going to physio on a regular basis to try and strengthen my leg, but it's looking like I'll be limping from here on in.

Ah well...
Type 6 tibial plateau injury - muscle graft from left calf - skin graft from right thigh - numerous plastic surgeries.
