Dr. gives patient an A+!

Monday, February 25, 2013

Thanks to some very nice pain meds, I was able to use the Continuous Passive Motion machine "aggressively" (according to DH) and do all my bed-ridden exercises. This prevented excessive swelling in my knee and enabled me to reach 0-120 degrees of extension and flexion in 1 week's time. I have also gradually reduced the amount of pain meds I am taking. Doctor was amazed. I am cleared to begin physical therapy next week!!!!! Yay! Woo HOO! Whoopeee! In the meantime, I am to wean myself off using 2 crutches and onto using only 1; and to placing more weight on the leg during this week. I also must continue wearing my anti-embolism stockings. Kinky!
