Hey all - I am officially 6 weeks post op! It’s amazing how fast time flies once you are feeling good
I’ve been back to work for a couple of weeks now (PT) and things are going well! Overall I feel great! I have many times where I forget I had surgery. And then other times I still have some minor aches and pains. But overall I am so pleased with my results this far. Fingers crossed everything continues to go well!
im able to walk my dog outside now, all of my PT exercises and I can get my socks on and tie my shoes all by myself! Ha the little things!
What a wonderful update. You're doing so well. Thanks for sharing.
I hope you enjoy the holidays and continue to share your journey as we enjoy hearing about your progress.
A very Merry Christmas to you!
Happy Monday! Just popping in to give an update. I am 10 weeks PO today!
Overall I am feeling great. Each week gets better and I am to the point where I rarely notice my hips at all.
I started Pilates last week - reformer classes. Absolutely love them. They are perfect for my personal situation in that they are low impact but targeting the very muscle groups I need to be targeting. I also am doing strength training and low impact cardio 2-3x a week. I am amazed at the amount of mobility that has returned. I can cross my legs, sit criss-cross applesauce and can easily put on socks, paint my toenails. It’s so freeing to be able to do the stuff most people don’t think twice about! I have also gotten a couple of massages - which were awesome!
Hope everyone is going well and if you are new to recovery - hang in there. It gets better each week.
