It ....ummm, they....move quite well! I checked! LOL.This morning I thought of a better description of “work” the patella, she will wiggle it around to “mobilize” it.
Your patella doesn’t need it.
Your swelling isn;t going to go down quickly. It can take months. even at 6 months post-op, you willprobably find tha your knee swells again if you do too mu ch activity for it.Biggest issue is still swelling. No amounts of ice, correct elevating techniques brings it down. Starting to think I'm stuck with it. Granted I'm probably doing too much as far as walking around, cooking, playing with the dog.
It's only just 2 weeks since you had this major surgery and I think youre doing too much - which will contribute to continued swelling.Wednesday I have a Halloween party at my work! I love Halloween and always have a shift party for their break. I've called to cater meatball subs...and plan on crashing the party in an old lady costume! Walker, house dress, life alert necklace, grey bun wig, orthopaedic hose!
Hi @beachy .... good! I had a friend stay with us last week and spent all my internet time talking and watching her paint (she's an artist and did some christmas gifts for me). She helped me with household chores and took me to a Halloween party at my work. I start real pt yoday....kinda holding my breath and am prepared for battle, but hoping there isnt one!How are you??????
