The last of my bandages are gone!

Posted by Elaine T on 3/29/04 at 13:02 (148069)

As my doctor instructed, I took off the pressure bandages today, and then I took a shower! Oh, heaven. My scar looks great; the usual peeling and scabs, but great. I don't have much more swelling than I've had for the past five years, and I'm amazed at how well I can walk. My surgeon is amazingly wonderful; I'm so grateful for him.

Really good to hear it Elaine. Are you doing any pt?

No PT. He gave me exercises to do three times a day. I see him on Monday, and don't know yet if he'll order PT.
