Hi I’m 8 weeks out now and my knee has had its ups and downs along the way. I don’t push my knee but just do basic exercises and lots of icing and elevating. I haven’t seen a PT since day 3 and have no intentions of seeing one. I don’t need one. My consultant is really pleased with my knee and that’s good enough for me. I make small strides every week. This week I have been able to get in and out of the bath unaided or supervised I’m thrilled.
Tough one as you know that knee is going to complain. I know it's not ideal. But can you perch on a high stool or sit in a chair for any of your teaching? I'm sure the students will understand and may even help fetch and carry if needed.I also have 4 classes in a row after lunch, so that means 4 hours up.
I’m the kitchen manager at a school, been out since April and start back day after Labor Day. Not ready at all.Wow! You’re still really early yet in your recovery. I think you might be pushing it a little too much. I’m going back next week after being out since March and I don’t feel ready. I’m an elementary school physical education teacher and I teach seven periods a day out of a nine period schedule. One day this year, I only have one period off. My knee still hurts and swells at six months. I met my surgeon last week and he sent me back to pt. I’m also dealing with a severe case of plantar fasciitis is in my opposite foot. I may just retire.
