Today is my 7 month knee-versary! I've come such a long way and I'm finally happy with letting my body tell me when it's ready. It's amazing that my body accepted both my tissue and donor tissue to make a new acl.
I can only squat to the ground unassisted in some positions. I definitely can't squat down on one side only yet. I used to be able to plop down in child's pose no problem too. I most likely have tendinitis in my patellar tendon on the non surgery side preventing me from deep squats for now.
I can't bend deeply without a strong ache on both sides but....here's to a great recovery with no major road blocks so far 🤞just slow gentle reminders to my body that certain movements are ok again!!!!
