Diary of a New Knee - Part 18 - Working Harder

After my latest doctor's appointment - I am just 5 weeks out from surgery - I was informed by said doctor that I needed to make some progress so that he doesn't have to take me back to surgery to manipulate my knee under anesthesia (me not him) to get my range of motion more normal. He told my loving hubby to  press on my knee and force it down and not be gentle about it. My new physical torturer is also pressing my knee, stretching it, bending it, putting a weight on my upper thigh with my ankle propped to help stretch it and other sorts of things she can think of to torture me with. All these things are happening and I can say after two days of more intensive therapy I am starting to make progress again. Very awkward happy dance here!
