Its been a little over 2 weeks since my surgery. The first couple of weeks were uneventful and I thought this was going to be an even quicker recovery than my last surgery (about 1 1/2 years ago). The day before a planned short run, the knee started to hurt and it felt like the pre-surgery pain. The big difference between this time and last time was that we moved. The move means more stairs and walking the dog. It looks like all the extra stairs and walking was a little too much and the doctor believes that this caused an inflammation in knee causing the pain especially since I hadn’t gone for the run when the pain started. The cause could also be a weakness that could be helped by some physical therapy. I get the spend the next couple of days with ibuprofen and ice to see if the pain reduces. Therapy might not be a bad idea but it is so time consuming especially since they will likely want me to go to their facility out by where I used to live, about 30 mins each way from new home. We’ll see how things go.
