PT day 1

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

Today was my first day of physical therapy. I am 3 weeks and 6 days post op from my knee surgery and I am ready to get back walking again. My physical therapist was surprised that it is almost 4 weeks since my surgery and I am just starting my therapy. But that is ok, at least I am starting now.
I am lucky I was in good shape before the surgery so there is not as much muscle loss, even though there is loss of movement and flexibility at this point. I know that I am going to have to work to regain this loss, but I am willing to do the work. I can't wait to get out and run and boat again. I still have that new boat as my goal!
So today wasn't too bad even though I am crazy sore. I know my next appointment will just be the start of the work to get my knee back into shape.

    I'm surprised they didn't have you start PT sooner, too.

    Surgeons. I swear my recent shoulder one would have preferred to just stick me in suspended animation for 6 weeks, rather than risk damaging his pretty stitches!

    LOL

    Enjoy that Polar Care heat exchanger.

    And do EVERYTHING your PT says!
