Hi doctor,

I got a ligament reconstruction surgery before four months. Till today, I have got 1301° ROM. I do not feel normal while walking and climbing stairs. Also, I feel that my operated knee is comparatively weak. Is this normal? What should I do to have a faster recovery?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It usually happens when the physiotherapy was not progressively increased, or physiotherapy was done intermittently.
  • Weakness is due to muscles not being conditioned to presurgery levels.
  • You need to increase the level of exercises. Start jogging, cycling, and training with weights. Doing this for one month properly will get you back to presurgery levels.

Probable diagnosis:

Ligament with slight weakness.

Regarding follow up:

Revert after a month to an orthopaedician and traumatologist online.---> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/orthopaedician-and-traumatologist
