@WannaKayak aw sorry about your setback and welcome to the ODIC! (Overdid it club)
So here we have an opportunity for American contradancing. You're a caller-- I challenge you to write a no-contact dance! Shouldn't be too hard, right? And keep pairs spaced out maybe two repeats' worth somehow, so movement up the line happens half as often but very suddenly? Other possibilities could include "only dance with a 'podmate'" (no fair to singles maybe though)
Then all that has to happen is, somebody's got to buy more industrial fans for the church hall and the band/orchestra has to be down on the floor so they can separate.
I'm full of it, I am!
Good news! My husband, who had been PT for 45 years before retiring last year, worked on me...myofascial release, as well as releasing the periformis, IT band, rectus as well as the incision site. Woo hoo! Loosened me up a lot. Feeling optimistic today! Took a nice walk, but not as fast or as far. And icing and resting and elevating, too.
Those hubbies do come in handy, don’t they? Lol. Good to hear. When things in the hip started to relax a bit, I really felt like I could see life in a new light and with loads of promise. The patience thing was a little harder to come by but it did pay off. Best wishes as you also exercise that patience muscle. Slow and steady.
