Post OP 7 weeks.Hey all, it's now the 7 week mark and my repaired QT is showing some definite signs of positive improvement. This past weekend I unofficially lost the immobilizer for a neoprene sleeve. I'll see my OS in a couple of days and he'll be officially fitting me for one.
As far as rehab goes...
I've been walking in the therapy pool 3-4 times a week for three weeks now. I can tell this helps. My OS will write for my PT to start next week, can't wait...
7 weeks post op here's where we're at.
- ROM 110 degrees
- Able to walk without immobilizer most of the time. I still wear it when I'm out in very public places.
- Leg does swell a bit after activity, OS said this is normal and wearing a neoprene sleeve will help reduce that.
I have noticed less folks are writing to this. Maybe it's run it's course a bit but I can't stress enough how much this blog has helped me through the last seven plus weeks. I'm happy I found it.
Here's to you Idaho Guy
