Week After Surgery
Thursday, March 06, 2014
Well, it is 10 days after torn meniscus repair knee surgery. I am able to walk without a cane now. I was only on the crutch for 3 days. Yesterday I went without a cane, though I use it when I am tired or if I go out. My doctor said to weight bear as tolerated.
My knee still aches quite a bit. I am icing it every couple of hours and keeping it elevated. It is still swollen twice the size of my other knee. Plus it is very bruised all the way around above and below.
I am doing seven physical exercises my doctor gave me to do at home. It takes about 30 minutes to get through all of them. He also said I could try the stationary bike 10 days after surgery. I went to the gym tonight to try, but I couldn't because I couldn't bend the knee. I think this is something I will have to wait to do until the swelling has gone down!
I have been very busy this week with my daycare. I started back up with the kids a couple days after surgery
I also finished a couple of more memory quilt tops. I named them Mahan Pumpkin Farm 1 & 2.
I will be showing all the quilt tops to my aunts & uncles on Saturday night. They will pick which one they want and I will start to quilt them.
I haven't really been able to concentrate on weight loss, but my real focal point now is my knee healing.
Thanks for all my SP friends support and encouragement!!!!!!!!!!
