Hey you rock star! :egypdance:
Thanks for sharing the great news of your post op appointment. It's certainly an encouragement to those following behind to see how quickly things can improve. Sorry about the bad PT experience, thankfully lesson learned.
A wonderful weekend to you!

Thank you! I felt like the poster child for hip replacement when I had that surgery and I feel the same way with my knee. I know I've been fortunate. I'm sure it's some combination of my healing and my surgical team. In any event, I encourage those thinking about having the surgery to be prepared and move ahead!

Another milestone- went to the office yesterday for the first time in the blizzard like weather. I will admit that it was a lot and my knee was SORE by the end of the day. I have a desk job but driving time was double the usual. I'm glad I went so I can get a feel for what to expect. I will need to elevate my leg and maybe do some work from home in the interest of comfort. Surgery was a little over 6 weeks ago. I'm discharged from PT with good ROM. I can still work on strength and balance.

@Creampuff I know you want to get back to "normal" as quickly as possible. But a return to work at only 6 weeks out is very aggressive. The recommended time off is 10-12 weeks and then a Phased return to work. This includes a desk job.

Listen to that knee. It is already telling you that you have done too much, too soon.
