Surgery 1/14/15 so 9 weeks one day past that date.
At PT today was measured at 125 deg. ROM. No more wall slides, going to a heal slide.
Did 12 minutes in the bike with a little bit of friction. Measured at 1 1/3 miles..
Things are going good. REALLY want to try driving the truck around the neighborhood.
Wow. It feels like I'm really slower than most with rom. Even those whose protocols are conservative with no weight bearing and bending for 6 weeks have better rom than I do. My os wrote 'progressing slower than expected' on my insurance forms.
Today is exactly 11 weeks post op from 1/8. I'm just at 92 with tons of effort and pain. I'm doing up to 3 hour pt sessions so I can get back to my 'physically demanding' job in 3 weeks.
I know everyone goes at their own pace but I really thought I would be close to normal at 4 months and I can't imagine that now.
Aqua therapy is really helping. But I'm relying on tramadol twice a day now.
