I had my first rehab visit today.  My physical therapist did alot of measurements and did a basic evaluation to determine my starting point.  He said I can put max 25lbs of weight on my foot when walking with my crutches and when doing my exercises.  I have three different exercises to do 3x a day.  The first exercise is putting 25 lbs of weight on my left foot for a few seconds and then releasing the weight onto my right foot.  It is like a back and forth motion from one foot to the other with my hands on a table and both feet on the floor at the same time.  The other is with my feet flat on the floor and pulling both toes up toward my knees keeping heel on the floor.  I can’t think of the third right now.  ice required 3x a day to reduce swelling after exercise and improve repair.

That’s great! I had my first PT visit today, too. My PT gave me 8 exercises. I jotted them down on my blog, too. Good luck!!!

What is your blog page? I can’t seem to get to you.

Great milestone, Lisa! I’m right behind you…hopefully beginning physio next week, which I’ll know for sure after my post-op tomorrow. I’ll post my exercises, too.
