I am almost two weeks post-op (I had to have my right tibia reconstructed and plated) and feel great. I use my crutches for short distances, my wheelchair for long. I am not to put *any* weight on my leg for several more weeks and obviously falling would be a bad idea. I do upper body "workouts" with barbells, but I wish there were more I could do. I'm able to move really well (I slept on my stomach last night while accomodating my casted gimpy leg w/o pain!) and am pretty strong. Do you have any recommendations for exercises I could try?
(I will obviously discuss this further, as well as PT, with my doctor when I see him next but I'm going crazy sitting on the couch!)
What's the worst thing that could happen to you right now? Something that would totally throw a monkey wrench into everything?
What do you do to stay positive?
