A few months ago, we certainly would not have enjoyed ourselves as much. Limping would have ruined it. A stiff knee getting up after the ride is over would have been annoying. Standing in line overcompensating with the good leg would have been painful.
Being practically healed is great! I don't remember what it felt like to be injured. Mireille remains cautious because the adjoining leg is still smaller.
Here's an update, 11 months post-op:
- If leg is extended too long, I crack at the first bend.
- One-legged jumps on surgical leg not even with jumps on good leg.
- Running is not perfect but pretty good.
- Surgical leg still smaller than good leg.
