I was confused yesterday when a PT told me I need to come back for the next 2 weeks 2 times a week. I already am past therapy timeframe as my surgeon told me at least six weeks and then I'm on my own. Plus I owed them $$$. I called my PA. And she asked me how am I doing and I told her how I feel and my strength and weaknesses. She said I can do this on my own as long as I keep up. And she will see me next Friday which will be 8th week! She may say I need therapy and if I do I will be going to someone else whom I've known them for several years. I am so relieved because of my arthritis which I cannot take flare ups.
I really did most of the work on my own. it's just a matter of keeping at it several times a day . . .If you have a hydrotherapy pool near you that's nice, but not essential by any means. I didn't have any of the things which people say are helpful, like static bike, or skateboard (only for pushing the leg backwards and forwards, no trying to do loop the loop yet) and I got there in the end, to 135 bend and 0 extension. It just takes a bit of perseverance!
