Today I rode my bike on a trainer, pedaling like a madwoman, the first time I have had enough bend in the new knee to make it over the top! This recovery has taken longer than I expected, though am just over 6.5 weeks post op now. I never really asked anyone how long it would take to actually forget-about-it, but when I finally did ask I was told it would be 6-8 weeks before the pain and swelling and redness would subside. It was 6 weeks to the day before those things finally lost their grip. Duh, a total knee replacement wasn't exactly a small surgery!
Watched the last 3 quarters of the 49er game when I got home. Wow! Reminded me of Montana at the end! Good game to watch, fair-weather fan that I am.
