A physical therapy team taught me how to get in and out of bed, use crutches, and how to climb steps.
A few vomit sessions later, and I was ready to go home. Day 2 after the surgery, I was on my way. I sat with my legs up across the back seat and prayed for no potholes (yeah right, this is NY!).
Do not try this at home unless you have a team of great friends and family who are willing to help. Help with getting into your range of motion machine (CPM) and then help with setting up the icing machine. 4 hours in the CPM and then icing 3-5 times a day for 30 minutes at a time. Appetite not included with these toys…
I made great progress and it showed in my post op (9 days after surgery).
I was asked to increase my degrees of flexion, had stitches removed, and was given the great news that my bone is healing really well!
Other than horrible daytime television, week one was not too bad. I hope the left leg proves to be just as successful.
Until the next update… Dancer down out.
