I had this, too, and it frustrated me so much after I learned from Bonesmart that that is not only unnecessary but also not advised. Like you I didn’t want to debate with them so I gritted my teeth instead and stewed! If there’s a next time for me I will try to be more like @sistersinhim , when people asked if she was doing her PT she would just nod and give some kind of non committal answer, because she knew that doing our ADLs (activities of daily living) is just like PT, but in a more natural and timely manner.I know they all mean well- but- my Family my friends my coworkers have all been non stop drilling me that I must do PT right away and as much as possible etc etc. I don’t want to debate with everyone though
It‘s hardly worth trying to talk to most people about our gentle way to recover as they just don’t want to hear it or believe it. But you are ahead of the recovery game already, as you’ve found Bonesmart before your surgery and have been educated on a gentle approach that does indeed work, so you know what to expect and what to guard yourself against. I didn’t find Bonesmart until 4 weeks post op, after some rough PT sessions, that I thought I had to comply with. You got this!
