Hello Calling Cards,
Today I had a post-op followup with my surgeon. I was in bad shape when I visited last week - my knee was swollen, red, hot, and aggravated. The antibiotics helped it calm down a lot, and today it looked great. My range of motion is a little past ninety degrees, which my surgeon assures me is just fanstastic, though I would prefer to have a little more flexion at this point. I'm getting antsy and I want to bend my leg!
The physician's assistant tidied up my incisions by scraping off the skin glue and snipping some suture ends. She used to work in plastic surgery and did an extraordinary job with my sutures in the operating room. I'm looking forward to a really nice 6.5" scar. You jelly?? :P
I've been given permission to bear 50% of my weight on my left leg, which is a huge relief and will surely be needed tonight when I go to my little brother's high school graduation.
Do you have graduations to attend for family/friends/yourself? It's a happy time of year :)
