I never felt you were prying L*I*T*A, I was probably feeling frustrated when I responded because it is silly and should we ever post about our job we are required to give up our passwords. I find it a true invasion of privacy but tis life, and I certainly need a job ha. I hope all is well with you and your knees and I apologize if I came off offensive.

Sorry so long ago, but was saddly interupted by life ha. Saddly I am not at liberty to dicuss my job in any sort of public forum because of the liabilities, it's a good job, and a government job. They have given me lighter work but that simply means I am inside a building ha. The reason I had to head back to work so soon was simply because i have only been there for two years and although I have never used sick time, I only had the two weeks at the injury and the 3 week for surgery built up. In fact I am having to work longer hours this week just to meet my full time pay. I believe in some ways it has been good. within the past week I have been on my feet so much that my leg has been extremely swollen, but the forced movement has caused me to meet the 90% mark, and finally meet 100% although there is far to go.
I hope you both are doing well.

Thank you both for the responses. I do have a ton of things going on. Many things I didn't even mention, and the marriage really could happen at any point, but we are waiting to sell real estate we own, but of course it hasn't sold yet, so we take one day at a time. I am in rehab, not as much as they want me to be though because my insurance has a limit of 30 visits and I had to have rehab to decrease the swelling before the surgery. I am supposed to be off my feet as much as possible, but really with my job it isn't possible so I am coming home each night swollen majorly, icing it, and putting a TEMS meter on it. I really don't know what to do. I saw the surgeon today and we are going to take off the ace bandage tomorrow and I will be fitted for a compression sleeve that they hope will help and will fit under the soft adjustable hinged brace I am currently in. As soon as the swelling goes away I will be fitted for a custom ACL brace, but that might be no day soon because of the time I am spending on my feet. My surgeon said my knee is looking good with the flexation, yet my physical therapist says that it isn't as good as it should be (I am starting to think it is just how he pushes me ha) It's really frustrating. Tell me about your knees.

WOW! At age 31 I never even thought I would be victim of a knee injury, but instead I ruptured my ACL completely, in fact they have no idea how I tore it into 3 pieces at the same time leaving a small piece of the ligament simply laying in my knee, until surgery. I am now 3.5 week post hamstring graft, and can straighten completely but where is the flexation??? It feels like there is something in there preventing me from bending, I hate it, it is so painful. My job is active, and I'm now on desk duty. I'm so completely trying to work through this, and on top of it, it is causing my ankle birth defect (no cartilige, complete failure of instep) to resurface. I know I can make it through, I have a great man supporting me (I have been a single mom for ages and am about to remarry hopefully spring of 2010). I am about to head back to school too to become a tech in x-ray technology (I think this is God's practical exercise ha). Tell me your stories of sucessfully coming back from your knee injury/surgery! I can't wait for the encouragement! emoticon
