    But....just think how good you'll be feeling by Spring!

    I noticed you mentioned in one of your posts above that in one months time you can finally get back to normal, whatever that will be for you. Please remember that while you'll be enjoying the freedom of no longer being under restrictions, you'll still be noticing progress for months to come. Something you struggle with one month, might be doable another month. It can take up to a full year for recovery. Some docs say even longer.
    So there are good things to come, allena! :happydance:

    Hi @allena
    I started off with short walks from the beginning and gradually built up by doing daily. My hip has appreciated the workout though my spine is not so keen.
    I use my crutches but about to drop to one so will shorten length. Gradual works best for me.
    I found myself smiling when you said you would like to sleep on operated side as although I can now I seem to revert to being on my back most mornings when I wake :heehee:
    Like you looking forward to being able to put on non slip on shoes !
    Onwards and upwards

    That’s great to hear. And as Layla said, you have spring to look forward to. I was pleased to have my op in December, so I could get the lying around part out of the way while the weather isn’t so good and I wouldn’t miss any of the spring. We’ll both have a new spring in our step this year!

    Hi @allena Great to read about your progress and standing at the hymnal singing!! Wonderful!! You sound like you are making good steady progress.

    Don't worry about what the booklet says. We all progress at our own rate. I find comparing myself to others just makes me grumpy!!

    Have a great weekend :SUNsmile:
