Subject: Tochlea grove mrf update

Hi everyone

Just to keep everyone updated, I am 3 weeks post Op now.
Evert thing is going well upto know apart from them fitting my leg brace back to front, hinged forward!
I should of had 20% bend from day one but as it was fitted wrongly I had 0%.
Really confused my physio, when I went to him after 2 weeks.
He has now set it at 40%.
For the first two weeks I had to keep my leg dry, so no baths or showers, just strip ashes:-(

Just one question, how o how do you sit on the loo with your leg braced at 0%,lol

Hi Taff, glad to hear all is going well. You couldn't make it up,how on earth did they manage to put the leg brace on back to front.
I would imagine sitting on the loo with 0% was difficult LOL.
Take Care, hope physio goes well!!!
