No that's not what we said - we said "Hips actually don't need any exercise to get better".I wish I has read the bit here that says don’t do any exercise from a physio that hurts.
And I certainly wouldn't do those ones! Read this BoneSmart philosophy for sensible post op therapy and then answer my questions!She has told me to do clam exercises and side stepping
Pain and discomfort at only five weeks post op is common. Hopefully you're icing and elevating. If you're not please consider doing so per the instructions in the Recovery Guidelines under ICE and ELEVATE. It will help.My leg hurts if I walk on it without a stick and is still a bit swollen. I’m doing all the right things but am still very restricted and still not sleeping well …on my back and then tired during the day.
Staying busy and keeping your mind occupied is important if you're feeling this way. It will pass.With so much time on my hands and little ability to do things my mind begins to worry. I’m trying not to go there and tell myself all will be ok but still the worrying happens.
I have watched loads of movies and series on TV!! I have plenty of audio books and have been going out into my garden and walking a little bit around the neighbourhood
Helps more than one would think.Yesterday I put on my make up and made myself look and feel nice.
Also I'm going to do some writing and make a gratitude list every day.
Yes, The Big EscapeTill 'the big escape' I'm seeing that I need to reach out a lot more and a lot more patience is required
