Day 22
Getting lungs back in order. Less shortness of breath. But still frustrated this happened. Stepped back from cane, using walker cause I can stride better. I know it’s still very early in recovery, but anxious to get back to baseline, although realistically, it’s been years since I was baseline. I do take comfort in the fact that the right knee pain I was having before surgery is gone. Hopefully stays that way. Blessed and moving forward, enjoy your weekend!

Yes, part of recovery is figuring out what is/was baseline when we have had limitations imposed on us by the hip as it started failing. It can be part of the adventure as we progress through recovery - discovering things you can do that do not hurt anymore but for right now small steps will get you there.

Getting lungs back in order.
Great news!:egypdance:
Less person, (person means short of breath, but I used the acronym which the PC POLICE edited to “person”) but still frustrated this happened.
Our forum has a profanity filter that likely caught your shortness of breath acronym. It is probably best as I would not have been clear about the acronym...would not have thought you were trying to curse but maybe confused, and I know you wouldn't have wanted others to take it as an expletive.
No worries.

I stayed with mine for the first 3, possibly 4 weeks exclusively. Bilateral was hard to figure how to use my cane???:scratch: All temporary.
I do take comfort in the fact that the R knee pain I was having before surgery is gone
Again, great to hear....
Hope your weekend is Sweet.:tada:

@Vaachek, you're correct that our profanity filter caught your acronym. Please do not use abbreviations here on the forum as not everyone will know what you mean. We prefer that you spell out the terms you're talking about.....in this case: Shortness of Breath. I've edited your post above so that it reads correctly and will be better understood by our members around the world who are following your recovery.

Double hippy happy!!!:dancy:
Keep all mindful and increase activity incrementally, and you will stay out of the dreaded ODIC (Overdid it Club)
One of our infamous acronyms you don't want to become acquainted with:heehee:
Hope today is a good day.
