well i am slowly getting back to a normal routine. my sister left today, she was with me for almost 4 weeks. i could not have done this recovery without her. i am doing better on the stairs and walking a bit better. i am trying hard to bend and extend my legs, does it hurt...absolutely! but i realize now that i have to deal with the pain and just go beyond it. i am trying, it is still tight and painful. i think i was a bit fearful of doing some damage, aside from dealing with the pain.
i have driven twice and have no difficulty with this. my foot moves well, and i don't move my knee much when i am driving. i am happy that i will be able to drive myself to rehab. i have also cut down on the pain med. i am taking advil, which definitely helps with the inflammation.
i am on the road to recovery!!!!! looking forward to getting back to shooting abandoned buildings!
