I had my 12 day post surgery follow-up today. Why does the Dr. even bother talking to us as we're waking up from Surgery? We cant remember any details!
The Dr said my knee looks great, not much swelling and the sugery went great. They took out the staples. Im off all the percs, still on the blood thinner a few more days then start asprin.
I was amazed that I start PT next week, that will be 3 weeks post-surgery. The brace is still set at 0 and the PT people will adjust it as they see fit. Im gonna do PT at the same place that did my sugery, its close, easy access to the DR. And the whole place seems to have a good rep.
I have started to put a little weight on the knee but it just feels so unstable and other parts of my leg/ankle/foot are feeling weird from not using them.
Ive had a few random people engage me in converstion and ask if i had my quad tendon repaired, I guess the brace, crutches, and scar are a give away? When I answered Yes, they responded "oooohhhhh, thats the worst injury, my so and so inlaw had that and they were miserable". I am still maintaining a positive attitude but I can't wait to get rehab and get back to work. Good luck all.
