I have enjoyed learning that I am somewhere it seems in the middle progress of my 9 Week recovery. I am able to walk independently most of the time, and use a cane on uneven ground or long distances like walking around the block.bI met my PT evaluation with a 106° bend for a knee that had not bent in several years. That part of PT made me cry every time, and required the gate belt to force the bend. I still get stiffness when I sit to long, and the muscles around the knee get very painful if I have to stand in one place too long. I was grateful to know that other people are experiencing things similarly. I do still take Ibuprofen 600mg at least a couple of times a day. I do still elevate it and try to walk at least 2000-3000 steps a day. Thank you to all who shared their recovery so that I know I am still doing okay. My doctor told me to think of my recovery "not in days -but in months."
