32. Exactly!

Just got back from PT. I didn't use the cane around the gym at all. I did take in when we stopped for lunch on the way home. The second stop involved more walking and I was worn out so I took advantage of the store's wheelchair.

I know when I got the meniscus removed from the first knee in 2001, the rehab was hard work. When I went back for the second one it wasn't as bad since I had kept up with the exercises. Because of that, I was bad though and skimped on how much PT I did and how long I kept up with it. That second knee was always worse than the first one - and that's the one that still has to be replaced.

Today we moved completely to strength training. Everything else they had me doing before are exercises I can do here at home and still do on the days I don't go in for PT. I may get some ankle weights so once I am discharged from PT I can keep my strength up in both legs for the second operation. I'd rather do more walking but the bad knee won't let me.
