Three days post up and feeling pretty good. I had one night in hospital - only 4 ortho patients. Not much pain but I can fall asleep at any time. I'm on oxycodone and hate it - my brain feels foggy. Can't lift my leg into bed but otherwise....
Smart move and my guess is you will get back on track quicker this way.I guess I'm back to ice, rest & elevation.
I agree with this also, and I echo Leeja that hips heal just fine when allowed to heal and walking ( obviously not to excess)I feel a little edgy about this given the current situation and am seriously considering giving this a pass. I know you advocate letting nature take it's course and think that may be my choice.
Well, let’s put a positive spin on this. It can be good in that I believe with lots of icing, elevation and rest, it will dissipate and hopefully teach you a valuable lesson which will stop you from overdoing it again and further stalling your recovery.I underestimated and now have a big swelling on my hip. It doesn't hurt at all but it can't be good, right?
