Mako Robotic Arm TKR Week Three
Three weeks have passed and I reached 116 bend and 2 extension. Still more to go.
What is surprising me about this entire process is how all-consuming it is. I exercise, elevate and ice, sleep, eat, repeat. That's about it. Perhaps because I still take the meds to do the exercises, I am not able to focus or work. It also surprises me how much I sleep, and how the knee feels nothing like normal yet. I don't know when that starts to happen. We did start working on stairs today at PT, the opposite of what they teach you in the hospital when you leave, so more weight is put on the damaged knee. Still swelling on the knee but it is going down in the leg. Lymphatic massage is helping.
Any advice for the upcoming weeks from those of you who have been through this?
