Been There!! Done That DOC!! In the past 5 years I've had 3 knee replacements ( one went bad in 4 years), a shoulder replacement, a hernia operation and corrective surgery on my left foot with the right foot coming up shortly. I once thought those physical therapists were sent by the CIA to extract information from me Needless to say I've learned the Webster's definition of "pain"Doc Dan wrote: ↑Sat Aug 31, 2019 6:06 amI just had my second session of physio. OMG! It is really painful. It is not so bad doing the exercises. About an hour after my whole body aches, but it is worse from my fingers up my arm, across my back, down the other arm to the fingers. I was not prepared fir that....pain in my injured arm and hand, yes. The rest was a painful surprise.
I’m still months from playing my mandolin or riding my motorcycle again.
Always maintain the *expectation* that you will. There are instances I know of where doctors have told patients they would never be able to do _____ again, (or most likely never will); and in several instances, the patients, through self-determination, have proven them wrong.
Hahahaha! That’s more information than I needed to know .The Mastiff wrote: ↑Mon Sep 02, 2019 9:36 pmRemember to ice it Doc. It's good for inflammation.
My last rehab was on a shoulder rebuild and the therapist was a beautiful blonde. Man did she work me over hard! The more pain she put me through the more I was finding her attractive. That messed with me worse than the pain did.
Doing all the PT (and more) is the key. My husband had surgery for really advanced tendonitis in his elbow last year and docs told him not to expect full recovery. But he went nuts doing all the PT exercises and stretches and is now almost back to normal. Even his doc was surprised at his recovery. You can do it!
Thanks! My physiotherapist was surprised yesterday at how much I had improved. I am encouraged.JuPaul wrote: ↑Wed Sep 04, 2019 2:40 pmDoing all the PT (and more) is the key.
