Hi Gingerbread may I ask what make of CBD 2500 topical did you buy? There are so many on the market I am not sure what manufacturer to buy from?
I bought from a local retailer; they produce their own. They do have a website but I hesitate to provide it because I also purchased from their website and then began receiving hundreds of junk mail and a notice on my credit report that my email & part of my address had been discovered on the dark web! I contacted the retailer and they adamantly dispute that they had anything to do with it but it is too coincidental. I have to find another CBD provider now as well.Hi Gingerbread may I ask what make of CBD 2500 topical did you buy? There are so many on the market I am not sure what manufacturer to buy from?
As long as you feel you can do the PT exercises on your own that help you I see no reason to go to in person PT. I found during my last visits at the PT I was doing all exercises on my own anyway while the PT bounced between other patients and entering stuff on their laptop. At ~$450 a visit, they are most likely under pressure to keep patients coming back as long as possible.Anyone have their PT tell them they would have to keep going until they were functional with stairs, etc...? Mine is giving me basically a 3-6 more month timeframe!
I asked my PT on Thursday when I would be discharged. It's nearly 2 months since surgery. I did have the week reprieve due to the ER visit, however, I am a bit past 90 degrees flexion and peddling the bike without difficulty.
My at home list I received from PT included 15 different exercises. All of them 3 sets of 5 holding each for 10 seconds. I am supposed to do this exercise routine 3 times a day. Then I was to ice and elevate 3 to 4 times a day for and hour each time.Especially since I am resuming work this week, I don't have time for these twice weekly sessions. I have a laundry list of exercises they want me to do twice daily... That's hysterical. They take almost 45 minutes for the first round! There's no way I ever do them twice, and no way that's happening when I resume work.
Last week. "Luckily" I have naturally big thighs (lol) and have always done squats and lunges (pilates/yoga/weight training/Ballet Barre) to keep them in check so it came rather easy.That’s awesome, when did you start doing sit to stand? That must be difficult!
I actually enjoy the sit to stands. I've been doing squats for nearly 30 years so it's one of the things I am using to gauge my progress. The ability to squat without assistance is essential for my workouts (later on of course) so I am thrilled to do them now. No pain involved; if there were I'd absolutely not be doing themMy PT never had me do sit to stands. They can be hard on a new/young knee. If it causes pain, don’t do them. Since not all PTs recommend them, they are not essential.
