I met with the surgeon last Wednesday. He saw that my knee is still not straight and he said it probably will be eventually and that he has had other patients who do fine without having it completely straight. I asked him for a prescription for massage, which he gave me, but said insurance may not cover it. True enough. I asked about the next surgery and he said "any time". I said how about early October and he said he'd set it up. I should get calls from Nancy soon, with a date and instructions.
So this means I am on my own right now. No therapy, no future doc visits on this leg. I am continuing with work at the gym and at home, interrupted by trips (right now I am in Las Vegas). It's an odd feeling, free really, and I don't mind it.
