Had my first office visit PT today which was also the first time I've left the house since getting home last Monday. Their hip approach (much different than the knee!) is mostly just walking, getting up and down, and daily activities so I was pretty happy about that. I was able to walk foot over foot without a pause using the walker today so I am seeing progress. I was able to get the OS to refill my pain meds even though they were reluctant. I get I need to wean off of them but I think it's stupid to have to put up with being in pain only 8 days into recovery because OTHER PEOPLE have opioid addiction problems. I know I don't have that issue, I was even taking them long term for a while, when the pain stops I stop taking the narcotics, it's a pretty simple equation.
