You need surgery for what reason?What are the effects of nerve damage at your leg?
When i started physiotherapy i couldn’t straighten my knee and i could bend it for 3-5 degrees.No kidding.Also my ankle and achilleus was stiff as rock and due to nerve damage as told before,my leg was facing the ground.So i couldn’t even stand with whole foot on the ground.After around six months of pt (and a lot of pain) i managed to make my free steps.First with one crutch and two weeks later,no crutches at all.Rom of knee was about 90 degrees.Pain slowly started to fade out.A lot of swimming(with fins) and walking on sandy beach during summer time was super healing.
At this moment I’m walking normally but i get tired easily-for my physical standards.I’m working out(bicycle,weights,swimming,etc)so to strengthen my muscles around the knee.I also damaged my meniscus and the front tendons that hold knee in place(i do not know how they are called in english) were cut during the accident so if i do not want surgery again,i must work out for the rest of my life.Biggest enemies are stairs,standing and slippery surfaces.
The tip i was given when i was in the penguin stage was to “think and do” walking and even to exaggerate leg moves.You have to “excercise”your mind also to walk properly.
