A Quick Overview on Life These Days:
-Bending, Extenstion and ROM seem to be very up to par
-My knee only feels stiff when I am sitting at my desk for long periods of time
-Still no running, but I am avid on the bike, rowing machine, eliptical and others
-My knee doesn’t “pop” as much, apparently the knee cap is getting back into it’s groove
-My operated leg is still not as strong as the other leg (only 50 million more squats to go!)
-I am (cautiously) “jumping” on the BOSU ball and shuttle machine
-My scar is pretty much clear, no more purple/red to it
-My scar tissue has faded fast, sometimes I have to search hard to find the little bit of it
-I am actually looking forward to getting back to sports soon (sports, as in playing on a team) I’m also a huge advocate of being cautious with this bionic knee, so no set date yet, but I feel ready. I will be hitting the slopes in Tahoe this January.
I hope all is well with everyone! Where are you at post-op and what is your new knee life like these days?
