Seventh day post-op. Work from home? Yes knee can! (Few wires required.)
Finally time to get back to the 9-5 grind via my “home office.” I’m very fortunate that my company/bosses are letting me work from home for a few days. At this point in the recovery game, my mobility is still not super–and I have to dedicate so much time each day to CPM and excersizes (approx. 5 hours). Knowing I can work from my CPM makes a world of a difference. I realize that recovery is (or will be) different for everyone. No matter how fast you recover, remember, there is no standard, so be sure to spend ample time focused on getting your knee better and also plan to work from home for a bit. I think your co-workers would rather have you keep your noisy CPM machine and ice machines at home, as to not hinder their productivity. Besides, it’s hassle enough carrying yourself (on crutches), a 30+ lb. CPM machine and an ice machine home from the hospital, don’t create more work for yourself by bringing them into the office.
