I'M DONE WITH THE WALKER
and onto using a cane
This morning at physical therapy I was pleased to hear that the range of motion is increasing in my knee. At two weeks I am at 114 degrees of bend. On Monday I was only at 95 degrees (before doing any exercises at pt.) Getting my leg straight is another matter. Only -10 degrees and after working it I was able to get it to -3. I was encouraged because I am still in loads of pain and had been wondering if I would ever get it back! Not to worry.
After Dave got home from lunch with Chip and stopping in to see my aunt, I walked with Dave from our house towards the mailboxes.My hip was really giving me some grief so Dave made me stop and wait for him to get the mail so I would be able to hopefully make it back home. Ouch! I'm getting there!
|I'm waiting right here, cane in hand.|
|Now to walk all the way back home....our house is beyond the planter in the middle of the street on the right.|
