No PT for you

WTF moments abound… PT is for folks without a job. Read my rant here: No PT for you

  1. If it’s any consolation (in the UK/NHS) I’ve seen my PT twice in the 9 weeks since I ruptured, and she definitely isn’t there at weekends! Having said that I’m not complaining, she definitely seems to know her stuff, and of course I don’t have to pay for it.

    I’m a software dev myself. 15 weeks out for training sounds great. We’re too small to be able to do anything like that so we try to stay on top of it ourselves. I feel your pain at not being able to be there. Keep up the recovery!

  2. 15 weeks- my stomach just flipped. What is everyone’s experience with time off of work post-surgery? I was thinking three weeks. Am I way off???

  3. No. 3 weeks is probably about right, but it really depends upon what you do for a living. I was working in bed by the beginning of week 2 and was basically back full time in week 3. But due to my relapse, I have worked almost exclusively from home. I can’t even imagine how much time it would take to get back to work if I had to work on my feet.

    The 15 weeks was related to a project I’m working on at work not my recovery time…

  4. I was out for 3 days and then over a weekend so basically 5 days to recover. But I also work/sit at a computer so I would be sitting at home so why not sit at work!

  5. I went back to work 5 days after surgery. Learned to use the iwalk quickly as I’m on my feet all day and need my hands. I did cut my schedule back a little bit and have to take rest breaks between some appointments. What I am finding out is that I get really tired by day’s end. The ATR leg feels like it weighs a hundred pounds by the end of the day lugging the cast and iwalk around. I’m two weeks post surgery today and my orthopod says everything looks great.
