Re: Started WB now my knee hurts!
I have not been able to walk for the past 5 months (was NWB...NWB with the boot...NWB again...then finally had surgery and then NWB for the month after that). I am one month and one week post surgery. My knee was doing the exact same thing yours is doing. It isn't tracking correctly. I'd recommend that you work with your PT on some exercises that focus on your pelvic strength and work on ROM moves for your knee (i.e. biking...mild side to side lunging with a slight bend in your knee....assuming you have the OK from your doc). The entire ankle, knee, hip all work together so it's no suprising that you're having knee issues being NWB for 11 weeks (the muscles have not worked the way they are supposed to work for a long time). I, too, WAS a runner...not anymore but I'm sure you'll get back to your running again...it will take time...be patient and persistent with your rehab. It makes all the difference in your recovery!
I hope this helps.
