Back to square one

It's been 5 weeks since my fall where I broke my leg and tore my ACL. The ortho doctor had me walking with a walker, putting most of my weight on the good leg. I've been doing that for a couple of weeks. This morning when I woke up, my knee was swollen and sore. I can't bend it. I called the doctor, and I'm back to the wheelchair and have to see him tomorrow. I don't know if I have been putting too much weight on it by accident, or if I slept on it wrong. I hope I didn't cause it to shift. I've wondered from the beginning why he didn't put a cast or brace on it, but he just told me to stay off of it. I'm getting really tired of this.

I'm so sorry. This is no way to spend your summer.

Do you think it would help to place pillows under your knees at night?

Maybe this isn't sending you back to square one. Maybe this swelling and need to see the doctor tomorrow will really just be an opportunity to get you better faster or an opportunity to intervene due to whatever is happening to your knee. I just prayed for you.

I am sorry this health saga has become never ending. I hope it is just something simple like you slept on your leg funny.
