Wednesday 6 February it was check up time and removing band-aid…
 

and adjusting the knee brace so I can “bend” the knee 30 degrees the next 2 weeks.

The doctor recommended against travelling by flight at least for the next month, that means no trip to Cyprus 🙁

The insurance company also told me that the insurance don’t cover if something should happen with the knee on a journey the next three months.

After the visit at the doctor, I got a first appointment with a physiotherapist. She said it was a mistake that wasn’t any after the surgery. Probably coz of Christmas time…
She approved the exercises I found on the internet and gave me two new ones:


Sit on e.g. a chair, stretch leg 5 sec. – relax with bent knee in 5 sec. 


Similar but opposite – Sit with leg stretched out on the sofa – bend knee 5 sec. – relax with stretched leg 5 sec. 
15 times, 3 set. each.

Switched the ice pack ice therapy to heat therapy. Put the bag in a bowl with boiling water, after a few minutes it’s ready to use. Put it on the knee, nice and soothing…
