12 days post op

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am now 12 days post op, and have had my 2nd physio appointment. First one didn't go that well, only had 50 percent flexion, so it had gone down a lot since leaving hospital. I was a bit deflated on Monday, but yesterday was a new day, so got my personal trainer head on, I'm retired now, got my music out and did all my exercises to music. Well it paid off cos I had 95 percent flexion today, and have graduated from crutches to 2 sticks. Also been to see my doctor who was more than happy to keep me on my pain relief, so am a happy, but sore, bunny today.😃

    Well done Diane, that's great progress but just be careful and don't overdo things and get too sore. Keep taking meds and icing and elevating. Keep up the good progress.

    Hi Diane, that sounds amazing, well done.  I haven't had mine yet, 4 weeks to go, but that sounds incredibly positive after 12 days.
