6 Weeks Update of my Knee

Ok so it is now just after 6 weeks of my knee injury and I'm getting better with every single day. Two Weeks ago, I had an appointment with yet another Ortho doctor and I found him reasonable. He had a look at my knee and said that the knee is stable (he did the Lachmann Test). He told me that I should now start focussing on stretching my knee and that I should let my Physio know that the goal for the next two weeks should be to do some exercises to straighten the knee!

But one good thing that the doctor did was to prescribe me a custom Don Joy brace. He told me that I should drive straight to a medical supply store and order a Don Joy knee brace. He also told me that once I have the brace, I might not need the crutches anymore. So I went to the store and got the measurements for my thigh and was told that I have to wait a couple of days for the brace to arrive. Once it arrived at the store two days after I ordered it, I was really glad to have it. Like the doctor said, the brace was all that was needed and I could walk even more comfortably without the crutches!

The brace also helps in avoiding sideways movement of the knee. I wish I had this brace on when I went Mountain Biking. Had I had this guy on my knee, I probably wouldn't have injured my knee in the first place!

Here are some pictures of the Don Joy brace that I have now!
