I don't even know exactly what they did. I ripped half the knee cap from the cartilage and I know they did something to that, they had to take out an fragment that was over 3cm in size out of my knee, and they lengthened something on one side and shortened something on the other side to hopefully hold my knee in place better.
DH meet with the doctor after and he told him that's what he did, then he told him I'm probably going to need the crutches for a while , that to put weight on it as was bearable and to keep my brace on, and that's everything DH said he said, but after two weeks I feel like I should be doing more but I have no idea how much is too much, what I'm supposed to be doing and the surgeon is off until next week. II wish I had of got to talk to him but I never saw him again after the surgery. I tried taking a step a few days ago and it felt like someone shocked my body through my foot and my knee buckled. I wish I knew if there was something I was supposed to be doing, I wish I had some idea how long I was going to be like this. I can walk on the crutches now but unless I have someone with me I just don't have the balance on them and end up falling, so I don't get up as much as I would since DH has to follow me and hes getting pretty tired and worn out between me and our 12 month old.
I'm just venting it's just so frustrating, I have no information, no idea what I'm supposed to be doing and no idea when I'll be able to walk again. After two weeks of not being able to get up I'm getting so anxious for more progress
