Back on my feet… for 10 minutes every 2 hours

Last Saturday I had a 10-day followup. The orthopedic surgeon removed the stitches. He said there is no fluid in my knee, which is good. I took the bandage off Monday and have three small scars that look like two eyes and a nose on my knee. Sam Rodebaugh suggested I draw a mouth to complete the smiley face.

My brace has been bumped up to 60º and the physiotherapist upped my exercise reps from 10 to 25 twice a day and told me to walk for 10 minutes every 2 hours, which I have been doing. 

So I am back on my feet, at least a little bit. I haven’t had any pain until today, perhaps because I just reached the end of the NSAIDs.

I go back in a little over a week and a half (2 weeks from the previous follow-up). By then I should be able to bend 90º. Perhaps a couple weeks after that I can get rid of the brace entirely.

The BELC graduation has been rescheduled to the 29th of March. I should be navigate the stairs by then, at least slowly.
