The plates look good. Keep going, each day is one closer to getting a bike.
Clinicians can contact the clinicians' hotline number on 0800 111 131 (for doctors only); and, in addition to 0800 029 999, the public can also contact the public hotline number on 0800 111 132. These lines all operate 24 hours a day.

And you should know hey, it's worse than PMS! ;)

Now there's a plan - haha!!

Done any physio yet?

Yup started with physio almost from day one, but took it easy the first 4 weeks, as per docs orders, just some quad building exercises, etc - then the 5th week started to bend to 45 degrees, 6th week to 60 degrees and now I need to get to 90 + and have taken my first steps on Fri, aided though with the crutches, so I am getting there - the physio has been a great help in getting there a lot easier - now the docs orders are "on your feet ASAP!" or he will have to take me to the theatre and bend my knee properly :D so some work still ahead, but I will walk unaided in 3 weeks :) Just wish the knee would start to look a bit more normal and not like a big blob on my leg, but they say the swelling, scar tissue, etc will still take months to heal - I guess more patience is still required :)

It does... with use. :thumleft:
Unless you have a bust up leg like mine... it will never be "normal" and will always look like a great white took a nibble... :imaposer:

Dont overdo it, but try every day to "push" it. Like a few extra degree bend every day or second day, and before you know it, you're back to normal. Oh, then of course NO pain, NO gain.
Hang In there, all comes right in time, and with Eskape around, you should be pampered all the time, (Or is Pamper an uder or over statemen)

Thanks Rob,,, at least mine doesnt look like a nibble was taken, so there is hope then :)

Tweets, pamper is never an over statemen where a girl is concerned ;) and yes, he is doing a great job of it, although Im sure he's counting down the days till I get back to work :D

Ja you right, no pain no gain, it's just frustrating when you dont have the energy to push it further, but everyday is a step closer!

Consider it this way. Its like a mountain you just have to move. The only thing is deciding how bikg a shovel you can operate with. Right now it looks like you are operating with a table spoon, or even a tee-spoon. Your move! BUT move you HAVE TO. Stongs.  ;D
