Hi all tomorrow marks 28 days (4 weeks) - I’ve ditched the crutches as they were more cumbersome than help - though I do keep them in the car in case I go out for longer than 30 mins.
physio today was pleased - swelling right down and ROM etc fab - walking well. Moving from stretches to gentle strengthening exercises as I have full muscle waste from inactive 4 years - very gentle though !!!
I’m pottering around the garden and can walk for 20 minutes at a time without the knee complaining so I’m happy with that
Dressing removed and scar nice and clean - not quite ready for bio oil and massage for scar tissue but very close
Only major thing to report is the bone aches when sat still - my gosh it’s like tooth ache in the knee !!’
so I continue to take paracetamol and ibuprofen and Ice at least twice a day - I’m hoping it’s a sign of everything fusing together nicely.
Hope you are all okay xx
