Knee giving our after labor


I delivered my sweet baby girl 12:59 this morning. I had an epidural and pushed for 3 hours legs held back. My left knee is completely swelled, numb and when I walk it will give out. The doctors say it’s normal and should be better in 24 hours. It’s stressing me out not being able to get up to feed or change my daughter and to have 2 people help me walk wherever I go. Anybody experiencing this or have in the past ? Please help it’s really making me upset I can’t bond with my baby .
