Woohoo! I am without crutches or cane for the most part!
My Physical Therapists, the inestimable Gina V and Noah, have been heating my operation site, and rubbing and needling, and general torture for about a month. At one point, I felt I had an extra joint in my injured leg about 1/2 way from my hip to my knee. It felt REALLY weird! The lower quads bunched up to a rock just above my knee, and the upper quads didn’t seem connected to the lower. Now it feels more like 1 muscle again.
I couldn’t walk much because my injured leg wouldn’t (and I mean absolutely refused to) hold my weight to allow my right leg to move. I am gradually getting my gait back. I still limp, but it’s much less pronounced.
This IS measurable progress!
