Thank you so muchGood Morning and a Happy Wednesday to you!
There's no place like home for some serious R &R as you begin the recovery journey. It sounds like you're off to a good start after the initial unfavorable, but common reactions you suffered at your surgery site. Thankfully after a good night's sleep, you're back in action and ready to roll. Keep up the icing, elevation and proper rest. Take some naps if you feel inclined. Our body does it's best repair work while we're sleeping.
Stop back often, we'd love to follow your healing journey and offer support and encouragement along the way. I hope today is a good one!
Yes that’s what I’m doing. Actually had a quick shower. Yeahhhhhhhhh. Nice to be clean but very scary moving around in there but I did have assistance. Guess I don’t need to be to crazyDon't need to push anything at this time....the effort it takes to get up, go to the bathroom, take a stroll down a hall, and other small tasks is plenty. In a few days, those traumatized legs with settle a bit...although the lifting issue could take longer. One of mine actually needed help getting up more than the other. My quads felt like somone used them for punching bags.
Hope you are staying iced all you can...and moving about even just for a few minutes every few hours will keep your blood flowing.
Yippee for your new hips, you will love them...eventually.
Nope - slow and steady does it every time. Your priority right now is icing, elevating, medication around the clock as prescribed and repeat. Rest, rest and more rest. Plenty of time for activity and building strength when those hips are healed.Guess I don’t need to be to crazy
