Follow-up Knee Appointment

We went back to the hospital today to check how Chris’s knee has recovered since he dislocated it.  He can walk on it without crutches and the swelling has gone down a lot but he still has a lot of bruising in the back of his knee.

Amazingly we were in and out of the hospital in half an hour – a big thumbs up to the NHS for that!!  In fact I can’t fault the way we were looked after – really excellent.

The good news on his knee is that it is all in place as it should be and he just needs to make sure it is fully recovered before he goes back to playing sport.  So, no PE for the rest of term and no football until next season.

We can do some limited Schroth exercises now but it is difficult because he still can’t fully bend his knee or put too much load on it.  As usual I am worrying that we are not doing enough to stop this curve progressing but sometimes life just gets in the way!
