Here is my latest news – I had good news yesterday as well. After being NWB for 6 weeks after my accident (tibial spine avulsion injury), I was told that the knee is strong and the bone has healed.

My doctor told me to start putting 25% weight on it with two crutches for one week, and every 3 days going to more and more weight.

Next week I am going down to a single crutch (interestingly, on the opposite side of my injury – my right knee was injured, so I am to use my left crutch).

After 2 weeks, No more crutches and I can start walking.

I am starting physical therapy today, twice/week for the next several months, and hope to be running in 4 weeks.

Best, LisaB
