Saw Matt the Physiotherapist aka Torturer today. He confirmed diagnosis of tendinopathy. He also agreed that the pain from the healing knee replacement disguised the injury caused by us getting T-Boned and my knees impacting the dashboard.
Had some really intense massage and manipulation of the affected area. I called it “being well tenderized”. Ouch.
Have an exercise regime to gently work the tendons and to strengthen the quads.
The good news is, the total knee replacement is healed. It will be a full year tomorrow since I had it done. I probably would have been fully recovered sooner, had we not been in that car accident. This is just a bit of a delay, not the end of the road. 🙂
