Here we go PT again Tomorrow Oct 7th

Posted at 3:30 pm under Week Three Post Op

So far still very good.  Today I rode the stationary bike for 15 minutes, put two ankle weights on the boot and worked my quad muscles out.  In that work out I tried to focus on my knee.  Then I worked out my hamstrings wow that was painful but felt good.  We have 20 stairs that lead to my bedroom and I went up and down them 5 times.  I did it on my knees and only used the hand rail for balence.  Later tonight I will try to walk on the leg a little.
During my last PT session I put full weight on my recovering leg and no pain.  I think tomorrows PT will be a lesson on not using the crutches.  My PT said that she would call Dr Roeder and let him know I am doing good in PT and it might be time to lose the crutches.  I will post tomorrow and let you know how it goes.

    This is great you are on a bike 3 weeks post op. I am nearing the same timeline (Friday is 3 weeks since op) and have been doing some weights and sit ups/press ups. I dont know about using a bike yet but assume you are in a aircast boot? I am and am happily walking around with no crutches.

    Well, when ever I work out I keep the boot on so I do not have a loss of balance and have an accident. I was cleared to go with out the crutches today and I post more in my next post today. Thanks for the comment and you are doing great too!! Keep up the hard work and we will be jamming again soon.
