Grandma-ma can do. Yup, that is grandma-ma on a recumbent bike at the gym. She is doing some PT on her own to increase the bend or rotation in her new knee.
Five days ago, grandma-ma could not bend her knee enough to make the pedals do a complete circle. She had to pump them back and forth in half circles because that i as far as her knee would bend. Grandma-ma does PT exercises every day and each day she is able to increase the rotation in her knee. This takes lots of time and grandma-ma is not a patient woman but she is working hard. Her hard work paid off this week and now she can ride a stationary bike. Love to all of you and lots of hugs and kisses. Grandma-ma
