Knee Update

Posted Jun 17 2010 12:00am

Not too much going on lately.  I did change my blog around a bit and plan to keep it this way until I start running again some day :)  Hope you like the changes!

I have PT next Tuesday and Surgeon followup on Wednesday.  When I last saw my surgeon and PT my knee only bent to 77 degrees. The week before it was at 57 degrees.  The week before that it was locked at 30 degrees for the first two weeks post injury.  While not an official measurement I can now get my knee to 90 degrees consistently over the past few days and maybe slight past that for a minute or two last night.  Progress!  Of course, all this progress will be started over again after surgery but it's all necessary to my recovery.  My goal is to be at 100+ degrees when I see my PT in 5 days. 

Also, after I showered yesterday I was walking around carefully without my brace on as I often do.  My knee almost gave out on my going forward.  It felt very unstable.  Yea, just a reminder that it's messed up!  Thanks for the reminder knee :)

Still working out lots. About an hour every day including 25 minutes on the arm bike.  Fun stuff!
