Made it to 90 degrees FINALLY!
Tuesday, June 18, 2013
Well, better late than never, right? I FINALLY reached a 90 degree bend, 6 weeks after my knee replacement surgery. I am the proverbial tortoise, not the hare, for sure! My recovery has been steady, but slower than most, and this is a real milestone for me. I start back to work next week and in every other way, I've been feeling like I'm making good progress. My strength is very good, I'm down to one crutch and transitioning to a cane this week. In fact, I'm starting to walk without any aids now, for a little bit. This is the first week I'm starting to feel "normal", more like myself and it feels terrific.
I'm proud of myself for not giving in to boredom eating while I've been inactive, and I've actually taken off about 7-8 pounds since my surgery, which is more than I expected.
