What will your post-surgery recovery be like? No weight bearing for a while?
Yes, confirmed, passed the checks (mostly holding my breath and crossing my fingers that I can still keep on this accelerated schedule despite them being hit with a massive medical history file that might make them say slow down). I’m booked and surgery is coming up on Friday :)
The info I have says I will be 50% weight bearing with crutches right away. Then increase to full weight bearing by three weeks but if I have had meniscal repair it will be six weeks. We have to wait and see what the surgeon finds. The MRI looks pretty good.
I can drive after 6 weeks.
Phase two is weeks three to twelve. At the end of Phase two the goal is to be fully weight bearing and walking with a normal gait.
Crossing my fingers for you!
Hope your recovery is as fast as the whole process has been so far.
All the best - we'll be thinking of you.
