My first day of rehab went really well! The difference between both legs when it came to my range of motion was very small. On the downside the scar tissue and build up under the skin is heavy & thick due to my incision being so long. The PT massaged the area around the incision which really helped it to loosen up quite a bit. I would suggest to everyone if your therapist isn’t massaging the area around your incision ask them to do it. It may hurt a bit but it is well worth it.
I expected to be in pain this morning but I felt great. I took the advice of a few of you and did not take any pain meds prior to or after my physcial therapy session. As it turned out I didn’t need it, so thank you for the advice!!
Have a great day everyone on your road to ATR….
