One month since surgery.
About two-and-a-half months since the injury.
I think I'm healing pretty well.
My physical therapist has me walking (albeit a bit strained) without crutches now. Today's regimen was a bit tougher:
Knee warm-up with stim: 10 min
Massage: 10 min
Stationary bike: 10 min
Leg lifts with stim: 7 min
Short arcs with stim: 7 min
Passive knee flexion: 3 x 15
Side-lying hip abduction: 3 x 15 x 3lb
Side-lying hip adduction: 3 x 15 x 3lb
Wall squats (1/4 way down) with exercise ball: 3 x 10
Game Ready icing with stim: 15 min
My therapist had me walking back and forth during the first half of the session and the second half. I had to remind myself not to walk with a limp since I can bend the leg now. It's hard when the knee is so stiff, and it's first instinct to lock everything up and swing from the hip instead of walking heel-toe.
While I was on the bike, however, I discovered I could bend my knee far enough to rotate forward, so I was able to cycle for 10 minutes. That was a complete surprise to me, since the last session I had I couldn't go backwards without pain, let alone forwards. I hope I can make it to my school gym at least twice a week to cycle.
I'm icing with the Cryo-Cuff now since my knee is totally swollen from the activity I put it through today. Recovery sure is exhausting.
