I love to travel, but I knew with surgery it would take a while before I could travel again. One, because of my mobility and ability to get through security/terminals. Oh, and something about zero leg room didn’t sound appetizing.
So where did my first trip with the new ACL land me? Right in the middle of downtown San Francisco with its impossible hills. Good thing it’s a business trip and I can expense my cabs. But it is kinda of disappointing to be in SF and not do as much sightseeing as I would like to. But I will see what the knee can do and let you know. As of now, I can let you know what the knee could do.
First Day of the Trip:
Three cabs. Four states. Two planes. Way too many hours in airplane cabin pressure…yes knee can! Just like an overseas flight, be sure to get up, walk around, stretch and pump your ankles. Gotta love budget travel. Time for some serious ice, maybe a few excercises and a whole lot of sleep.
P.S. I took my brace, just in case, and left the crutches. If you want some serious attention/VIP treatment,by way of wheelchair service, pre-boarding and your choice of seat, bring the crutches.
