Week 5 / 5週間目
I walked on both legs for the first time after surgery, 5 weeks ago.I started the full-fledged rehabilitation at the KNVB CAMPUS (top-level athlete training facility) in Zeist, the Netherlands. After removing the knee ligament brace, my right leg was obviously thinner than the left. Because of the water I was able to walk smoothly in the swimming pool. A few steps after entering the water, “I can walk by myself! Thanks for the pool! ” I was overwhelmed with relief and joy. First, just like a baby. But, I have a feeling that I will make steady progress step by step.
Week 8/ 8週間目
A new week of cycling (stationary bike)! From this week I’m going to the center five days a week. It’s not natural yet, but I’m little by little making steady progress.
