Hello to all unfortunate enough to be in this TPF club with me.
Here is my Recovery Update.
After being in a wheelchair and NWB for 15 weeks, I was given the blessing to start weight bearing and gait training on Sept 3.
That was twenty days ago. I am now walking with a cane. I have a very clear limp and a very stiff knee. I can only walk up/down stairs one step at a time. It takes my leg approximately four minutes every morning to figure out that I need it to work with me to walk. I also have to spend a few seconds “thinking” about the actual walking process before I can actually take a step.
My knee makes all sorts of POP and CRACKLE sounds when it needs to straighten or bend, which is pretty much all the time.
I have noticed that I am (slowly) getting strength back in both legs.
Because I am still dealing with the consequences of my Mid-May motorcycle crash, there are moments when I still cannot believe I suffered this bad of an injury. Yet then again, I can see that I am still here and I still have both legs attached to my body (in the early days in the hospital that was debatable).
If I can, albeit slowly, come back after my injuries, so can everyone else here.
Hold tight and keep working!
