In brief: Call your ORS

These are fairly routine instructions and d/c planning done after knee reconstruction procedures.
If you did not receive post- operative pt instructions as outpatient then call your ors office and inquire.Most all ors would want you to begin or continue pt @ outpatient clinic after your hospital stay. Best of luck!
