My leg hurts. It pretty much hurts every day, all the time, unless I’ve taken a painkiller within the past few hours. I go to physical therapy twice a week, which is a ton of work, and although it feels good to be moving my leg again, I am just DONE for the day within a couple of hours of getting home. I get nothing done on PT days, beyond working on getting range of motion in my leg, because I can BARELY stand up and walk across the room, even with my crutch. I am just wondering, how long is this going to HURT this much? If you’ve gone through surgery and rehabilitation, maybe you can share some insight with me. What was your healing process like? Did physical therapy wipe you OUT for the rest of the day? I feel like an eighty year old woman. Boooo.
