I am 2 weeks out from the Denovo NT surgery. I am excited about the hopeful outcomes, but a little nervous about not doing anything to hinder attachment and growth of the cells. The cpm machine is driving me crazy. I am a very active person, so being off my feet and on crutches has definitely been a change of pace for me. How long did any of you feel the need to have to take the pain medication? I'm not crazy about taking it for so long, but i am a bit of a sissy when it comes to pain.
Yeah, thats basically what I have been doing; just listening to my body and the knee seems to be responding rather favorably.The last couple of days have been huge for me as I don't have much pain left at all in the knee. I even rode my bike the other day for a good 20 minutes with a couple of small hills and had no subsequent pain into the following day....... I have very little swelling presently, the small amount that's present is hardly noticable.I believe the key to success is now regaining my leg muscles which will take quite some time.
