Here's a brief knee update: This week I was cleared to start riding my bike on the road and lightly jog for 15 minutes on the treadmill. Too much snow to ride outside, so I road stationary and did my daily elliptical training instead. I hope to get outside this coming week.
The light jogging is going well. I hope to be cleared for jogging outside in two weeks.
My right knee is still swollen, but that's normal at this point. It will swell up for another couple of months or more, according to the physical therapists. It feels good internally. My range of motion is 130 degrees out of 140. My last function test had my right knee at about 85% (compared to my left knee). At 90% I will get released to jog longer distances. I may be cleared to return to sports in two months.
I am grateful to God for my progress. It's kind of amazing to me considering what my knee looked like on October 14 when I dislocated it and November 17 when the surgeon reconstructed it.
Will I return to playing with RPC United this summer? I assure you the answer to that question has more to do with the Mrs. than the Dr.
