First PT session

Today I had my first physical therapy session.  I was showed a few ROM activities to do at home and had 15 minutes of ice/electronic stimulation.  The therapist wants to take it slow until at least next week when I will be past 6 weeks post op. 

I told him that I have been doing some light walking in the house with the cane and he said as long as theres no pain and I don’t over do it, it’s not a problem but he recommended walking while holding the crutches.  He also said keep elevating the leg when I can and use ice sometimes also.

I was content with the session and go back on thursday followed by twice a week for the next 2 weeks.
