Slowly getting there

Six weeks and three days have passed since my knee operation. Tuesday I went to the hospital for the planned check-up. Within five minutes the doctor had established that my knee looked alright enough to start the revalidation. And by revalidation I mean start to put some weight on it again.

So, therefore, today my physical therapist came by for boot camp some instructions. Soon, my stomach was queasy and my head was spinning. After six weeks of bouncing around on one leg, I found that it took some heavy persuation to actually put some weight on that one leg. This week, I can slowly start to put some weight on that leg, up to 25% of my weight. Next week, that’ll increase to 50%, which means that I should be able to stand on both legs again. In approximatly four weeks, I should be able to walk again, without those damned crutches.
