For two weeks now, I did not have my rehab. But I exercise daily and make it a point to walk a lot of times during the day. Little by little, I try to walk without my walker. It’s just a small distance but enough to get me started walking on my own. I try to observed the effect of all the movements to my operated knee. Thank God that I have not feel any pain.

I still cannot go outside to resume my normal routine. I only travel for my check up. Through the four months, I have envied my colleagues who went out of the metro and country for vacation or work, I have decline numerous invitations to meet ups and party.
