Markie, I don't recall exactly what the ROM at 5 weeks was. I do know at 4 weeks it was 32 deg because that was my first PT visit. At 8 weeks I was 110 so at 5 weeks I was probably 40-45 deg. We have three vehicles 2 of which I couldn't drive. There wasn't enough leg room for my lack of ROM and one is a manual as well. The car I could drive is an automatic and I can scoot the seat back far enough so that my leg is almost straight. But yes, I felt a lot better when I could drive because I regained some independence.
