Title: Back at Work
Post by: lb573 on July 07, 2005, 11:21:10 PM
Hey all! Well, i had one day back at work now, and all i can say is "owie". I am swollen and quite painful, but i made it, well maybe not really, but...  Ok, i worked in the basement with my leg elevated from 9-11:30, and then went to work on the floor from 11:30-12:45(that was the only standing and moving i did all day!). I then went back downstairs to more office work(scheduling, bills, etc), but here i am at home with a very puffy knee. I seriously did not think that it would be this swollen only standing for 1 hour, but i guess i was wrong. I didn't need the crutches though, so that is good. I walked out under my own power...YEAH!! So i guess i will just ice and elevate for the night, and i see my PT tomorrow afternoon, and go back for more work on saturday.
