3 Months Check-Up
3 months already, time flies!
About as fast as these past 3 months flew by, was my doctors’ appointment this morning! Took the x-rays and saw the doc and within 45 minutes I was on my way again, with a big happy smile on my face.
The x-rays show no change from the first post-surgery medical check-up, which is perfect! Thus, I was cleared to start with physical therapy and light exercises as of today for the next 3 months! 😀 Woop woop! No playing hockey or any other contact sports yet though!
Additionally, I am fully cleared to be brace-free as well! No more neck brace while sitting in a car and no more brace for sleeping! What a relief! Aaaaand it’s my call now on when I feel ready to drive a car (or my lovely vespa) again!
Pretty good news right?
As for the physical therapy, I will have to start from 0. I’ve lost pretty much all my muscles and I’m already out of breath when walking for a couple minutes at a normal pace… Although I am really excited about getting started, it will be a really tough and probably sometimes also frustrating upcoming 3 months. But who said that it should be easy right? 😊
Next check-up: End of August!
