A small celebration!! You will know what I mean! :)
« on: May 21, 2011, 04:24:26 AM »
It has been just over 10 weeks since surgery and a big struggle with ROM and strength ever since. But, I finally was able to do a full revolution on the bike today!!!  I couldn't believe it, what a feeling!!  Lol. I know I can only come here to celebrate and you will understand!  Not sure it is enough to avoid the manipulation next week, but every bit helps. Keep on keeping on!  I'm so thankful for this board!  :)

I remember that moment so well - it felt like the first milestone on the long road back to a normal life. :) Many congratulations, and as Mary says this definitely isn't a small thing - it's a huge accomplishment and hopefully the sign of good things to come. :)

The first time my daughter was able to lift her leg off the bed in a leg lift on her own we made cupcakes and celebrated the next day with our PT staff. Weeks later after rocking those bike pedals back and forth when she made a full rotation I thought she was going to get off the bike and do a dance for us.  time to celebrate. No better feeling than getting back to the norm after surgery. Congratulation and keep up the hard work!!!!!!!!! ;D

Good for you!

I am also 10 weeks post-op.
I have started to be able to go a full revolution, after my MUA 10 days ago, and lots of deep tissue massage in PT.
It feels great indeed!
My PT only wants me doing it for 5 minutes at a time.
I have a good amount of swelling right now.
