1- I don't have my postop appt for another 8 days (seems like a long way out there! I might try to bump it up), but currently I do the CPM but that's it. OS said we'd talk about PT at my postop visit. The diaries of others sound like they got started right away ie- postop day 3 going to PT. So should I be fine to wait or should I start doing a few things at home? I"m scared to do exercises without a brace on! I do anklepumps too - not that those are much of anything. What did you all start doing while at PT? several people mention the bike - don't you have to already have 100 on ROM for that
2- How much should I be up?down? Currently I'm laid up in bed most of the day except for potty runs and do a little walker run around the 1st floor. Is that about right or should I be trying to be up more? I know my body needs to heal but sometimes they say that the bones heal better in response to some weightbearing.
3. My OS said I could be full weight bearing only with the brace in the locked position. Does that mean he expects I'm walking around on it?! My impression from reading is that you can break your tibia by weight bearing too much too soon, so I've been NWB or TTWB and thats it.
