Rally Recovery – Post Surgery Day 3

Today is day three. It’s time to go home. The discharge instructions will be reviewed with our nurses and you and your family to make your comfortable as you head home. Today your knee is going to feel really tight. You did a lot of walking and bending yesterday. There’s a lot of swelling we’re going to see some bruising, so we need you to continue to ice your knee. When you get home, we don’t want sitting around. We got to keep moving because that’s how we get this knee better every day. Congrats on day three.
