Tomorrow Marks 3 weeks since my RTHR, so thought I’d post a recovery update. So after great progress the first week and a half, I developed pain in my thigh and then swelling that moved from my thigh to my ankle over the course of a few days. Then swelling went away as did the thigh pain. PT progressed well and no problems and leg was getting stronger. My exuberance with my progress led me to vacuum the house....big mistake and paid for it the remainder of the day and the next, but ice and elevation helped. I am using a cane and working with the PT, who is excellent and not pushing me too much, on incorporating some new exercises to help me condition the muscles needed to walk unassisted. Well yesterday I walked around the house a bit just holding my cane in case I needed it. Pain when full weight bearing was maybe a 3. Later in the day I went to Costco and walked a lot and pushed the cart (sort of used it like a walker). Got home and apparently again overdid it again and had to ice and rest the remainder of the day. Today I am taking it easy at home and not pushing it. Moral of the story, don’t let your enthusiasm for making progress lead you to do too much too soon, because you will pay for it afterward. I suspect everyone has this happen at some point and it’s a bit depressing when it does and you have a bad day or two recovering. I am still trying to figure out the right balance between pushing forward and holding back. Post op appt & X-ray is next week, so hopefully will get a thumbs up that all is well. Have a great day everyone!
