I just re read my previous post, and realized some of my post had been erased. I wanted to mention that I do physical therapy 3 to 4 * a week and work out on my own 1 to 2 hours a day still in terrible Pain most of the day. It has been 5 months since my tibial plateau fracture and still unable to walk
Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation. Possible causes of pain/ discomfort that may need to be considered include continued inflammation, muscle stiffness, neuro-muscular causes etc. I would suggest continuing with the physiotherapy for a few more weeks to help regain muscle strength and see if it helps with symptomatic improvement. If you do not notice any improvement over the following weeks, you may seek a review with your orthopedician for a detailed evaluation. After a secondary cause is identified, it can be managed accordingly.
Hope this is helpful.
