I just feel crumby, all the way around. I am frustrated. I am trying to progress with PT and struggling. We keep modifing the exercises and still it is too much.
I still have up and down issues with swelling.
Yesterday after PT, I did everything thing right. Stayed for icing. Came home to rest (rather than running errands). Within an hour, I had increased pain. Burning, throbbing, stabbing in my right leg and low back. The initail pain meds that I took didn't seem to help so after a couple of hours I took something else.
Spent the rest of the day on the sofa.
Today isn't as bad, but my right leg still aches and burns.
I am just so tired. Tired of the pain, tired of the brace, tired of being tired, tired of the swelling and not being able to wear all of my clothes, tired of it all.
I know it would do me good to get out of the house, but I don't feel up to it.
My hubby tells me to take it easy. I'm tired of taking it easy!
Sorry to vent and rant. Just wish I could take a week off of this recovery. Revamp, reboot and then come back and finish!
