Update on the Knee

Friday, April 04, 2014

Today I went into for a follow-up with the orthopedic surgeon on my knee. (As a recap: Back in December, I went ice skating and fell, twisting my knee in the process. I had to stay off the knee/immobilize it for almost 2 weeks and then afterwards, I could only do light work, like cycling.) I have been pretty much doing everything I had been before the accident - running, Zumba, and spin - but I wanted to make sure the doctor took a look and gave me the approval.

It's so funny; the appointment itself took like 3 minutes (and that was with me asking questions and getting clarification too!). I waited probably 30 minutes or more to see him. Ah, doctors!

Regardless of the wait time, I am pleased to report the doctor has cleared me for normal activity! I can run and do Zumba and basically everything I was doing before. I am to continue to do the knee exercises to improve my range/strength, but the pain I'm getting he attributes to atrophied/weak muscles.

SO YAY! I am incredibly excited about this and am eager to jump back into my regular routine - which, granted, I had been doing anyway, but it's nice to know I have a "clean bill of health".
