Progress? 

Posted on

I would have hoped that after 6 months (yes I know my surgeon said 12-18 months for a full recovery) things would have progressed a bit further. The stiffness and moderate swelling are a daily occurrence and running is still way out of reach. My hope of hitting the slopes for a few turns this winter is also not looking good. 

I still don’t have full control of the muscles in my left leg when I am walking downhill or down stairs as I was reminded again this morning. Heading down the stairs to the garage, I mis-stepped and fell down the last 3 steps and ended up on my backside. No major injuries (other than my pride) and I got up, dusted myself off and headed to work. 

No worse for wear but it was a stark reminder of how far I still have to go in my recovery. While being cancer free is sooo much better than the alternative it is still frustrating to a certain degree.

      Thanks Fred! I am doing well but the recovery is just slower than I want but actually ahead of what they told me to expect. Can you say, impatient!!
