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!

Hope everyone is doing well and Merry Christmas!

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.
