It has been six weeks since my knee replacement.
Everyone says I'm doing great, but I'm not so sure!!! There is still a fair amount of pain when I do therapy, I haven't been given the ok to ride my bike, and I can't completley straighten my leg or flex it as much as the Doctor wants. I am only able to straighten it to about 7 degrees and flex it to about 109 degrees (he wants me at completley straight and to at least 115 degrees for bend).
On the positive side, I am able to take Otto for short walks, make it to work every day, got rid of the crutches and cane a week and a half ago, and still doing therapy twice a day (once with the physical therapist and once on my own at home).
Maybe I'm just impatient, and expect more to happen faster. I will just keep working on it and time will tell.
