Thirty percent and counting


I went to the surgeon yesterday for another post-op checkup, and all is going well. He adjusted my brace so I can practice bending my leg by 30%. I can sleep with out the brace, and I can take it off when I’m on the couch, but I still have to wear it when I walk. He wants me to start walking without the walker!!!  Yahoo.

He’s given me new exercises to do, and wants me back in 2 weeks so he can adjust the brace to 60% mobility (or possibly 90% depending on how I do in the meantime.) He expects a full recovery within 6 to 8 months.

I’m so freakin' happy.

  6. You are so competitive I bet you wear yourself out with exercises, just so you can wow the surgeon with 95% mobility! Listen to your body and don't overdo. I am thrilled for you but I don't want you doing too much in the drive to be 100% again. Hugs!
