4 weeks post op OATS
« on: January 08, 2004, 08:32:16 PM »
I just got back from OS and so far so good!  He gave the ok to start weaning off the crutches!!!  Starting with 25% weight bearing and taking it slow from there.  PT will start next week, I need to work on my quads...non-existant right now.   He was able to push me to 125 degrees  flex which he was extremely happy about.  Extention still seems to be a problem but he is confident with PT it will come along in time. There is still alot of swelling but nothing abnormal.
Overall, I am very pleased at this point and feel extremely confident that things are coming along ok.
I think the hard part starts now....PT.... we will see how confident I feel next week  :-/
