Physical therapy went okay today. I am discovering just how weak my quad muscle over ‘the’ knee has become. That is very weird to me, though. It’s as if I NEVER exercised that side of my body. How could I lose strength that quickly? Oh, well..
I can see progress from my first PT visit. Movements hurt less, I can bend more and it generally does not hurt afterward – which I’m told, is a good thing. I have a bit of pain going up stairs and my right leg isn’t as strong. It trembles just a little bit on the up motion when going up stairs. Coming down hurts just a tad as well. Things are looking up.
My plan is to start walking and using the elliptical machine for a few minutes each day. That makes me kind of happy.
Honestly, I don’t know if I can actually run a marathon, but I CAN finish one.. 😉
Til next time!
