I had my six-week appointment at the fracture clinic this morning (which was actually 7.5 weeks after the accident) to get the cast off and see what the x-rays said.
They couldn’t have scripted everything to be more perfect.
The fracture in the medial condyle isn’t visible on the x-rays anymore, the fracture in the lateral condyle is but has unionized and the callus looks great, and the entry through the meniscus has closed up and my ACL looks just fine. The tibial plateau is overall at 60% healed, I’ve been cleared for any and all exercises that are NWB, and I’ve got a baseline knee bend of about 40 degrees right off the bat. And instead of needing to keep off it for another three months, it’s just another six weeks to go before I can start walking completely.
But the best news? I’ve been cleared to ride my bicycle AND get on my scooter, albeit the latter with caution (“Don’t fall on it” were my OS’s exact words).
Man, but does this ever feel like my birthday and Christmas all rolled into one 😀
