 Re: Manipulation Under Anesthesia
Petros    4:17am Feb 12 2019

Finally i did the process of manipulation Saturday 9th of this month.Doctor shot a video and showed me bending the leg all the way back.After he put a cast (back slab) on the ankle to bend in around 90 degrees.He said that i should wear it for 15 days.
Now,3 days after the process i can bend my knee up to 90 degrees,a bit more than before.I'm in big pain mostly because of the cast,i feel i'm carrying 10 extra kilos on my foot.It is like when i first got out of the hospital,every move is difficult.Besides all,the directions of the doctor is to move and bend the foot 100 times more than before.
I'm starting PT today,but i'm very dissapointed.
