Either I have a stubborn knee or the surgical predictions were a bit off. The post-op paperwork says that I should use the crutches as needed, but that I should be able to walk without them in 3-5 days.
It’s now day 10, and although I can walk without them, I certainly wouldn’t want to for very long. I started physical therapy on Thursday and progress is being made He predicts I’ll be walking without a limp in a week or so.
I’m twitching to be able to walk around and even more critically drive again. Not to mention the eventual running, jumping, biking and generally playing with kids without cringing every few minutes.
I’ve also played far more Civilization IV than anyone really should in a week.
Still, I can see the glow on the horizon and I’m certainly through the worst of the recovery. Now it’s just patience and perseverance.
