good Post Surgery Physical Therapy - Visit 2 00:45

Another good physical therapy visit, it was nice to do some sort of workout. I am gaining more range of motion in my knee. Overall the physcial therapist is very happy with how I am progressing. I started with the stationary bike for 10 minutes. The last visit I could barely get the pedal around. This time I was able to do this right from the start. After that I did various exercises with the balance board, pro stretch, swiss ball, and some of the at home exercises. The part that I am having the most difficulty with is the lower part of my calf, which is normal for this type of surgery. It is locking up on me, especially first thing in the morning when I get out of bed. I was not anticipating that, but it is good to hear it is normal. Have a great day everyone!

    Sounds you're making some great progress! Calf locking up sounds scary, glad to hear that's no biggie.

    Hey Charles. Thank for the update. So the surgery went well then? Glad to see you've been able to start PT and that things seem normal and are progressing. I hope you aren't too limited when doing other things. Do you have to use crutches or a boot of some sort? Take care and heal quickly!!

    @Jocelyn - Thanks!
    @Ben- Thanks! no crutches, brace, or boot. Initially my knee was just wrapped with an Ace bandage. No issue putting weight on my leg, I am limping around. With this type of surgery, they want you to do this and start strengthing the leg right after surgery.

    I'm sure your work out ethic is really coming in handy now! When do they let you water jog or swim/pull?

    @Michael - Thanks! I am pretty dedicated to doing all of the things the PT gives me(exercises and walking several times a day outside of the PT sessions). Unfortunately I have to wait 3 - 4 weeks on the pool, the Orthopaedic wants the incisions to heal really well before getting in a pool. I am looking foward to it, I was making some progress in the pool before surgery.

    I saw your question - sorry I didn't answer sooner. I do see a benefit from training at higher altitude and racing at lower. It is really nice! It is hard training at higher but worth it when I race.

    @Steve - no problem! Very cool the high altitude helps with racing at lower altitudes.
