I haven’t posted in a while because I have been super busy with the start of school. Wow, it has been crazy. I haven’t walked this much in so long! My knees are feeling it! I ice everyday in the morning and at night. I start physical therapy at Drevna in Lancaster next week and I am excited to keep truckin’ along my long road to recovery. I am sadly still in the big ol’ black brace, which is the best accessory when I go out (not!). I cannot wait until I can take that off my leg for good!! Being around my team and everyone at school supporting me and asking how I am doing really makes me happy. Thank you everyone for your kindness and support, it means the world to me 🙂
TODAY IS MY ONE MONTH ANNIVERSARY!!!! WAHOO!!!!
6 weeks in the brace straight legged (locked) (August 17th makes it a month since surgery)
2 weeks in the brace unlocked
Then I am free !!!!!!
Before I started physical therapy, my doctor told me he wanted me to take it slow. He wanted me to bend my knee to 120 degrees throughout a 6 week period. I knew that that was a very easy goal to accomplish. Yesterday, my fourth day of physical therapy, I was able to achieve my goal. I was able to bend my knee to 120 degrees! Go me!
As I got my knee to bend to 115 degrees yesterday, I am rewarding myself to the day at the pool 🙂
