First day of post op PT
I was two days out of surgery at this point and time to go to the first post op PT for their assessment. Extension feels different than pre op. Somehow strangely almost less painful. Flexion is at about 60 degrees and average, but worlds away from the 135 I was going into surgery with. My quad is pretty sad, but it's there and "moving" on command. Straight leg raises seem like a cruel joke at this point, but I know they are going to be a big part of my life for a quite awhile. With help I struggle through them. My leg feels like a sausage and I wonder how long I can do this. Today is my hard day.
