Ahhh, I see.

When I had a cyst removed from my knee, during arthroscopy, I was on crutches for a week. Prior to this I had been using an exercise bike.

After only one week of not fully using both my legs, I was shocked to see the deterioration in my right quad muscles. I got back on the bike and literally cried because it hurt so much....not the knee, the quads. Gah! That was back in the mid 90’s and I can’t imagine how hard it would be to recover from being bed ridden for a month.
