Progress and Too Much Activitiy

On Tuesday my knee bend measured at 132 degrees! It felt the best it has since the morning of January 21st. I was super stoked. My good knee bent to 139 degrees. Almost there.

I was so stoked that I decided to really live it up on Wednesday and have since realized that wasn't the greatest idea. I started with PT from 7-8:45am, cardio class from 9:15-10:15am and then open taekwondo class from 11:45-12:30pm. It didn't stop there...I simply took an afternoon break. During the evening I assisted with instructing a class from 5:45-6:30pm, joined black belt class from 6:30-7:30pm and then finished with instructor class from 7:30-8:30pm. I modified everything throughout the day to not stress it out too much, but just the amount I was on it took a toll. I will modify things a little next Wednesday! LOL! I had a lot of fun though and it didn't hurt while I was doing everything. My knee was just really stiff today. My physical therapist said yesterday was a good lesson on what not to do after surgery.


  1. Oh how I remember measuring my ROM! It got to the point where my husband bought me a protractor and I would measure my knee bend daily.

    Congratulations on 132 degrees!

  2. Thanks! I've been asking my PT peeps to measure it often. I need goals and like to see improvement! :)
