In the past days I slowly tried to ramp up my exercise scheme, I still hesitant to push too hard, but I'm trying to raise the workload day by day - I'm currently on a level about 70% compared to before surgery.
One thing I had in mind on the last post, but feel now confident enough about to report is the strength in my right knee
Usually after walking for about 15 minutes (hopefully the following explanation will somehow be understandable) my knee joint in the elongated position (not bended) had a clearance (a range of about 10° of angle) where I couldn't continuously control the bending motion of the knee joint. While this problem has not resolved completely I would estimate that its improved by about 50%: I get this problem later on during a walk and especially in the rested state I feel much more comfortable (lets say 70% better).
After walking for some time my right leg usually got really heavy (like if I had 3kg on my right ankle), which also got better (lighter) to some degree (ca. 30%).
Another thing I noticed immediately after surgery is an improvement in my vision
. I suffer from a nystagmus in both eyes and some kind of cloudy vision.
The cloudy vision became better but I also felt that seeing was "somehow" not so straining any more kind of more calm/smooth. Maybe its also that the nystagmus became better, I think looking to the left side seems easier now, but I'm not that sure about that.
But for whatever reason I do feel some relief to my vision.
I used to have regular/almost daily problems with spastic twitching
(it may also be described as some sort of restless legs, I'm not sure
) in both upper legs. Its an urgent feeling that I need to put tension to the leg-muscle. If I do so for some seconds (or if I dont do it willingly the muscle-contraction occurs unintentionally like sort of a short twitching of the muscle) this urgency resolves but reoccurs every few minutes. (can anyone tell me - from my provisional description - what the correct term for this symptom would be?)
This Symptom has not disappeared completely yet, but got much better, I didnt have it for the past two days and if it occurred (the days before) it came with much fewer contractions per period and the twitches were not so strong.
