7-Weeks After My Knee Surgery (1-Week Off Crutches) I Was Walking 10K Steps A Day.

Quite an increase from the 4-weeks prior
though I was beginning to increase my
range despite the crutches.

So far, close to 10-weeks post surgery I am doing pretty well — even if I say so myself. NO PAIN, whatsoever — other than when I try to bend my knee beyond 30º. I have a feeling that this might be permanent. But, I could live with that, especially now that I am 65.

Still wearing a STIFF, knee-locking brace 23.4×7! Take it off for two twenty-minute stretches to do knee exercises. I now have 3 braces, and I have basically stopped using the DonJoy.

Also still using a cane when I walk. Can walk without it and do occasionally. I now also have a collection of walking sticks!

I had my quadriceps tendon repair surgery,
at ‘
Frisbie Memorial Hospital‘ —
performed by Dr. Charles Blitzer
of ‘Seacoast Orthopedics
on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

There was no pain to talk about
— throughout, from surgery to now.
