1 month post-op update

They said time flies when you are having fun. I don’t think I am having a blissful time in the last 1 month but time certain flew past me like a flash.

It has been 1 month since my knee surgery and things have been progressing well. According to my physiotherapist (a Brazilian who had an internship with Sao Paolo), I am behind time in terms of flexibility.

Pre warm-up front natural bending is at 119 degrees and back bending while lying on my stomach is at 110 degrees. Though I have improved since last week, I was told I am behind time.

With warm-up, I can almost do a full bend while sitting upright but he said I am behind time because measurement should be taken before any warm-up exercise. Guess I still have a lot to work on.

There is going to be a lot of passive bending, i.e. I lie on my stomach and he will push my leg to bend… trust me… it is very very very painful. I usually will scream. He told me there were Brazilian players who used to cry during passive bending… made me feel much better.

The swelling on the operated knee has gone down quite a bit and the incisions are all healing nicely. However, something not so good is developing on my right leg, where my hamstring tendon was harvested.

Perhaps I over-used my right leg to compensate my weaker left leg, the lower right leg has swelled up and the shin felt a bit numb. Perhaps it’s the stretching of the skin due to the swelling, I don’t know.

Anyway, I am flying back to see my surgeon this Saturday. Hopefully it’s normal.

Anyone wants t pick me up from the LCCT this Friday? LOL…!

Unicorn Girl said...

seriously - how long are you on medical leave ??? :) just out of curiosity .........

ZACL said...

The wounds are healing nicely. There will be some end of nerve numbness at the operations sites. In time, that should sort itself.

I wonder if you returned to work too soon and set back your post-op mobility programme. I know you had to get back to your new job. It wasn't good timing, unfortunately.

Keep up the good work.

Antares said...

Sorry, I was precoccupied with my own dental issues, so forgot to check on your recovery. This was posted in July, so you must be perfectly fine by now. You're an extremely polite chap, Zewt. Quite admirable!

zewt said...

Antares - no worries... hope you are recovering well from your dental issues and have regained all your strength from your denggi scare.
