Things are progressing slowly now here at the hospital, which is what rehab is all about I guess.
I’ve had some calf pain the last few days and the doctors were worried about embolism but my bloodtest came back ok.
I took my one week post op x-ray today and everything looked good, but there was a little thingy hovering in my flesh behind my knee. Best guess is that it’s a bone fragment from the extensive drilling done during my surgery. The doctors have said that it might dissolve, it might linger forever and do nothing, and it might become a problem. For now though we do nothing, rehab continues.
As for rehab, today I began putting substantial weight on my new knee for the first time. My passive flexibility is up to 90 degrees and my active flexibility is about 70.
Christmas draws near, I hope everyone has some kickass presents waiting for them!
