I went to PT yesteday and did 10 minute warmup on stationary bike and was fine. But then tried to get situated on the leg press and when I tried to lift my right leg I got severe spasms, broke down into tears and had to discontinue therapy. I was given ice for 10 minutes or so and managed to walk (slowly) to my car. Had trouble lifting that leg again to get out of car and had trouble getting into bed.
This morning I am walking but slowly still and every time I try to lift that leg above a certain point (and not very high) I get spasms. I am going to try sitting in the whirlpool for 20 to 30 minutes this morning and will bring ice with me to work. I will rest over the weekend and if this is not improved by Monday I am going to give my ortho surgeon a call to see what to do about this. I did notice after my painful PT on Tuesday I was having trouble getting out of the car and had pain with trying to get the leg up and out.
I hope this is just a minor setback and am going to keep moving, though with caution.
