Hi! So fare I have been going to rehab on Wed and Thru for leg strength exercise left leg only. Right now it looks like May 12th is when I’ll be able to start putting weight on my left leg and start to do some walking. I also have to see a cardiologist the 26th of this month. It could have been a lot worst. Thanks to everyone that has called and stopped by! Doug G
