    THR Swelling

    Well, i went to PT yesterday feeling low. Weather made me feel so bad. But my PT made a comment about how much better I am walking. She noticed i got out of the chair much easier. Still extreme muscle tightness which causes pain but that too is getting better. I get measured for my orthotic...

    THR Swelling

    I am curious. I started working again this past Monday. I have a job with standing and sitting, walking and some bending. I am so exhausted. How long will it take to get my stamina for work back. My PT could definitely feel the tightness working had created in my muscles yesterday. She changed...

    Thank you all for the kind and encouraging words. I am starting to see the changes you all have been telling me about. I definitely will have a lift, probably forever but I am starting to feel a difference. Therapy is working on the extreme tight muscles. I am getting stronger and walking is...

    THR Swelling

    Hi, just wanted to report that my therapy is helping but not as much as I had hoped. I just spent 2 weeks on a roadtrip along the Pacific Northwest and I did pretty good. But sadly, I hate walking because of my leg differences. I used to love to go for walks. Still not sure I made the right...

    Thank you all for the encouraging words. I realize that sometimes the negative thoughts take over. That's what has been happening. But you all made me realize, that's not who I am. I am a glass half full kind of girl. My faith is in God. I did lots of praying to get to this point, don't give...

    Thanks. I left the PT feeling so down. But in the ride home, I had a conversation with God. I realized it could be so much worse. As bummed as I am, I have no more horrible groin and joint pain. I am going in the right direction, and I will adapt to whatever my future holds. I just pray my...

    Well, I started physical therapy today. She confirmed my leg is longer by almost 3/4 of an inch. My muscles are also very messed up and tight due to almost 9 years of limping. She thinks we can get them close but I may need a lift for the rest of life. I have a lot of work to do. Thanks, my...

    THR Swelling

    Wanted to share after my doctor's appointment today. He believes a lot of my LLD is due to tight muscles and the need to loosen my hips. I will be starting PT to help. He feels by 3 months I should be feeling much better. The PT should help with all the aches and pain I am still feeling. I...

    My right leg is longer now and it is causing me pain. Back pain, outer hip pain, achy thigh. I am getting discouraged and I am not sure I made the right decision by having this done. I had hoped to have gotten rid of my limp. I see the Dr. on Monday afternoon. Do I need more time?
