Advice on ab belt

I recently purchased the flex belt (an electric muscle stimulator (EMS device) for training the abdominal muscles. It has been designed to tone, strengthen and firm the abdominal muscles) without thinking about my body piercings. I have a dermal on my side (above my hip) and my belly pierced. I can remove my belly piercing but not the dermal. Am I able to use the belt? Or can I put tape/band-aid over the dermal for a barrier?

Open knee surgery after an accident

I had an open knee surgery after an accident with 40 sutures in 3 places in total. I had a surgery to repair the open knee laceration. I was given complete wound dressing from thigh to foot area with a pad kept behind the knee for support. Now after 20 days dressings have been removed and the doctor has recommended some straight leg raising physical therapy exercises..It has been 3 days since doing these exercises. The problem is now I cannot lift the leg from sleeping position neither can be move his leg when in standing position to keep a step ahead. The doctor here has advised to come back in a week for followup however. Meanwhile I am concerned about the leg whether I would be able to move or what is the problem causing for me unable to move, however, I am able to lift the leg in sitting position, Please advice me in this regard.
