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.
