Current Frustration/Progress

So healing has been proceeding, surgeon was seen on the 16th and seems happy with progress.  We discussed how the leg is sensitive in three spots, where the screws protrude - likely to remain so.  I stated that the sensitivity was not significant enough to consider a surgery to remove the hardware, I suppose we will discuss it again in Feb at our final appointment.

Tuesday saw the PT guys, who focused on myofacial (?) release of the knee area.  At the end of it I was bending the knee 130 degrees, almost where the right knee gets, with no pain.  It was awesome.  Sadly, by the time I finished errands and got home the knee felt as swollen as before and has not really wanted to do such a deep bend again.  I go to PT again in 2 weeks and am really hoping that by then the knee will have recovered to a nice bendy move again.

As a side note, halloween costume this year - yeah, I got one.
