Trying to rest and hopefully my muscle tear will heal and will see doctor next Thursday to check on my progress. If it is not better I will be sent for an MRI. For now, the doctor says it is probably a small tear in one of the quad muscles. I actually feel better after only 1 day of rest. I was told I could still work 4 hours a day since it is a desk job. The hardest part is getting in and out of my car as I can't lift my leg without using my hands to move it. I definitely will not drive on the highways as sudden stopping is painful, too. I will do my best to rest. I guess when I had my other knee replaced last year I was very fortunate to have no complications. So far this is a minor setback and I will have to reactivate slowly and follow doctors orders to the letter. I also will need to be extra careful around the leg press machine and the steps.
