    I have noticed 5 posative changes.1)My scar isn't numb anymore,2)The area around the scar is alot less sore ,3)I can raise my right leg as high as my left leg(though it is uncomfortable to do so with my right leg),4)I can put my socks on the normal way and 5)my hip feels much closer to natural than it has in some time.
    I hope everyone has a good weekend.
    I almost forgot.I can cross my legs form right to left,not just left to right.:)

    Awesome news, allena!
    You've come so far. Your turnaround from sweet but downhearted, despairing pre-op, allena
    to hopeful, inspirational and upbeat post op, allena is heartwarming.
    I've loved witnessing the transformation.
    I hope it only continues to get better for you. :)
    Wishing you a lovely Spring weekend! :flwrysmile:

    It does take some time to get accustomed to that...this is about the time I started working on it myself.
    Things can still be sensitive...you Will get there.
    I'm so happy all is going well for you.
