Hi all greetings from Northern Ireland
I only came across the fourm today. I wish I had found it earlier as I am now 5 months after my injury and I think it has been helpful reading everyones experence of the same injury
I had my operation for a full OTR on 12th May. I was in a knee brace locked for 5-6 weeks then 40% for 4 weeks, 70% for 4 and 90% for 4 weeks. I am off the crutches and out of the brace for around 7 weeks now. Weight bearing has never been much of a problem for me I still can't get the knee bent more than about 90% sitting and a bit less if lifting my leg behind me.
I am now able to use an exercise bike for 15 minutes along with my other physio work which is helping, I can't receive ultrasound for tissue damage as there is still numbness around the knee and physio said it could burn me without me knowing.
My user name might tell you I am a postman so I need my legs working, I hope to return to work within the next two weeks on a rehab programme but the surgeon has told me I am still 2-3 months away from returning to full duties.
In closing good luck to everyone in post operation rehab.
