Well the PT is painful but needed. I'm currently limping with ankle aircast brace and 1 crutch. I climb my stairs because I refused to continue living on the couch. I can 'walk' for about 10 minutes without stopping. But my knee hurts like crazy (and eventually my lower back too). I've progressed; but definitely not back to 100%.
According to doc - I might not go back to the way I was before...but its too early to tell.
I'm back at work. Desk duty only, and I'm grateful for it.
I'm hurting already and tired.
By the way. Does anyone feel that their plate is irritating them? I don't know if it is plate or screw but it seems to come together into some kind of 'pointy edge' and hurts!!
I MISS WALKING! When I GET better, I'm going to walk every day !! I WILL never take this for granted again!
PS: nights are still the worst, swelling and pain.
