This past weekend, I went to the gym and got on the stationary bicycle to build up strength in my leg and build up my conditioning. I also did several sessions of rehab exercises for my knee. I worked up to 60 minutes on the bike and felt no adverse consequences. I will have my sutures removed on Wednesday and I’ll be able to do some swimming after that.
At work, I’ve run into two other colleagues who had orthopedic surgery on their knees — I guess meniscus tears are contagious (he said ironically).
