9.5 weeks post op
11.5 weeks post injury
We got a breath of fresh weather in the New Year here in Virginia. Today I had the motive and opportunity to get outside and hike for the first time since the injury. I did about an hour at a nearby park, nothing too harry, I just walked bike trails in the backwoods. It was wonderful to be outside. My knee still wants to lock and it feels a bit wobbly at times, and every step I take still feels tight, but for the first time I felt this will all be behind me someday.
If you’re at 20 degrees three weeks out, you’re doing damn good. I was pretty much healed before I started bending. Can you do leg lifts yet? The big thing is to not push too hard and not put yourself in a situation where you can slip and fall. You need to get to about 8 weeks before you are pretty much healed. Hang in there.
