About two weeks ago I started going to physical therapy three times a week for hour-long rehab appointments.
My surgeon recommended me a physical therapist, Hiromi, who has a resident/intern named Jason working with her. Hiromi is a spunky Asian woman in her 30s who lives in the East Village and Jason is PT student in his 20s who lives on the Upper East Side. Hiromi and Jason totally seem like they should be characters on Grey’s Anatomy, so I can only assume they are secretly dating other people at the hospital and have some sort of sordid family past (yeah, I still watch Grey’s Anatomy, I have a broken leg people).
I’ve had a few set backs, like a tilted knee cap, scar tissue and possibly some tendonitis, but if all goes well I’m hoping to be able to walk after my April 19th doctor’s appointment.
I’m also starting to figure out how to work these appointments into my busy work schedule while trying to maintain some sort of social life (hence the Broken Leg Blog absence). Home stretch people!
