Yes, I am an over achiever and I admit it. But if I'm going to put myself through this much pain and rehab, I'm going to get every thing I can out of it. So it goes with my knee. I am ahead in the bend of my knee and everything in general according to my doc. Maybe he's just being nice and encouraging me, whatever, it's working because the sooner I have this new knee whipped into shape the sooner I can continue on doing what I like to do.
I got my staples and all the dressing off today, traded it in for steri-strips:
It's looking so good and it feel good to have the staples out - those pesky things were itching and pulling.
We also got an x-ray of my new bionic knee - isn't it pretty:
Everything is looking the way it should and I'm well on my way to a great recovery. I'll have the CPM machine for one more week, take blood thinners for 2 more weeks and see the Doctor again in 4 weeks. Until then it's all about the physical therapy and doing my exercises.
Happy Stitches and Hugs,
