There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.

Hey Lita~ Okay, putting together a plan of action for when I return to school. It's imperative that I do some stretching and limbering exercises first thing in the morning. I get up early, so taking a good 10-15 minutes to do the gentle stretching and flexibility exercises my PT provided will help. We've even figured a way for me to workout during my lunch/planning times with simple foot movement exercises to strengthen the knees. O the knees! Then after school my community has a workout room where I can ~ believe it or not! ~ bike gently. Yes! Yesterday I actually rode a stationary bike for the first time in ages! In fact, both of my knees were able to make the full rotation and without pain! I'm ever so thankful as this is a huge leap in healing and becoming whole again. So gotta get a strong, flexible plan in place 'cuz failure is NOT an option. YAY! Thanks for your great support! It's all a learning process! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon BB~

Thanks for your take on it. It's amazing when I talk with my three physicians, I get three different inputs. HA! I'll listen to my body and do my due diligence for whole recovery.

that should work as along as you do the exercises outlined they wanted them done every 2 hours with the repetitions so the joint does not seize up ...................
all the best......

WOW! That sounds like a dream! Everything here is spread out. Thankful I had home health PT but have to travel in crazy traffic here to get to outpatient 'n then the co~pay makes it prohibitive to go twice a week. My PT is great so he's putting together a complete recovery package for me to do at home & then as income allows, I may check in with him for monitoring/measuring my progress. The goal is to get to 120 degrees I flexibility. Working on strengthening my balance, too. Thanks for your feedback, Lita~ emoticon BB~

where we live we have a clinic orth dr and attached is a specialized orth physio department as well as x-ray department..............they all work together for the patients benefit...........they know exactly where you need to be with your exercises on a weekly basis they measure the bend of the knee to see if you are where you need to be and then give you a plan of exercises to do at home to get things on the right track........
we loved that everything was in one place and that all were familiar with the patients needs as they arose........
it made things very easy and allowed one to progress every week to their potential......
hope this helps

I'd be interested in feedback on your experiences with outpatient PT. Just had my first session this week, which was great. My PT is pretty easy going, but I felt like they were pushing it a bit to insist I climb stairs as it's murder on the way down. Of course, I'm in a hurry to get back in the pool, which I will need to be able to climb.

Anyway, in speaking with my wonderful Chinese doc (who saved me from a hysterectomy!) advised that I'm not ready for stairs, they're rushing it. All my exercises he wants me to do only one set of reps and ever so gently and not rushing. He also encourages me to walk as much as possible. He also feels I need a wearable knee brace to support my new knee until I get s'more of my weight off.

With the exception of sleep deprivation, I'm healing exceptionally well. My surgeon prides herself on leaving a pretty scar as her signature. LOL And I'm at 105 degrees flexibility with the goal of 120. Meeting with my surgeon next Monday for final x-rays and evaluate accommodations for my release to return to school.

Any takers to share their experiences, advice and/or feedback? Were your PTs intense, pushing you to do more than you were able or ready for at the time? What was your outcome?
