Re: 6 week post Knee Reconstruction/Tibial Osteotomy
If you get out of the brace and off crutches in 6 weeks you are very lucky I'm on a 3 month term. But yes as Larimie girl says you have to take the pain meds as scheduled so that the pain does not get ahead of you, because once it does, it's hard to get it under control. Are you going to PT and doing your PT at home. Are you keeping your knee and op site iced, this will help tons. Other than that, you just need to let others help and have your hubby take care of the kids as much as possible, there's just things you won't be able to do for a while, and if you push, it you'll end up injuring yourself and making it worse.
