Days 4 and 5

Things are still progressing nicely but the knee is still stiff at times. I went to the gym tonight and was on the stationary bike for 10 minutes and some leg extensions with very low weight without any pain. Gonna do my exercises before I go to bed and ice it some more.

I see the doc on 1/30 and I'm shooting to be back on my board on 2/1 to do some light riding. That might be to aggressive but I figured I would set a goal and work towards it and see how things unfold.

Day 6

I had a little pain in what seems like the knee joint tonight which surprised me a little. I felt a little click in my knee as I flexed it which had disappeared after I had the surgery. The pain was close to one of the suture locations so maybe it's not actual joint pain but I'll reevaluate in the morning after I've had some time to rest. I have been pushing things pretty hard and have been up on it a lot. I'm thinking that I may need to back off a little bit on the physical side of things and relax/ice some more.

Day 7

I decided to stay off my feet and ice more often today and the knee feels much better. It seems that I was pushing a little too hard and need to rest more in between my exercise sessions.

I've been doing butt scrunches as part of my exercise program.

Don't forget, clamshells, good lateral lunges and forward lunges be picky not to let your knee interally rotate.... usualyl this is how the injury started so it's best to train in a way that fixes the reason it happened

Thanks for the tips!!

Days 8 and 9

Things are going much better since I backed off a little on my activity level. I still do all of my exercises but I don't trot all over the building while at work. I've been spending more time at my desk with my leg elevated and ice it 4-5 times per day. No real pain in the joint and my range of movement is still increasing while the stiffness is decreasing. I'm going to stay the course and ease my way into some of the more advanced exercises over the weekend. I see the ortho doc next Friday and I'm hoping to be back out doing some light riding (if things keep improving) in the early/mid part of February.

Days 9 and 10

Things are still going well but when I over-do it my kne lets me know about it. Yesterday I went down to Chicago with the GF and while she took her daughters to American Girl (what a racket that place has going) I wandered a few blocks to the North Face store and then another couple of blocks to the Burton flagship store. By the time I got back in the car my knee was aching. Got home last night and took some ibuprofen and iced it up. Felt pretty good by the time I went to bed. Woke up this morning to about 4 inches of snow and went out to shovel. Got back inside afterwards and the knee was stiff and hurting a bit. It's going to be -20 tomorrow and I wanted to get the snow cleared before it's gets brutally cold. On the couch right now icing it up and am gonna relax the rest of the day.

I'm able to bend the knee well past 90 now and am going to try some of the more advanced exercises starting tomorrow.

Days 11 and 12

Range of motion is almost back to normal but there is a bit of stiffness/pain when I really bend it. Other than that, pain is almost nonexistent and my limp is almost gone. I see the orthopedist Friday afternoon so he can check on my progress and remove the stitches. I'd love to do some light riding this weekend if he says it's OK but I'm thinking that the weekend of 2/8 is more likely.
