Same! Mine are counter height at kitchen island and NOT comfortable. Didn’t want my leg dangling and if felt uncomfortable to put my foot on a portion of the frame. Recliner and sturdy dining chair were my go to’s. I could only tolerate a dining chair for a short time early on though. It’s great you’re able to work from your recliner. Not a bad place for you to spend some decent time at only 16 days post op. Wishing you a comfy night!have high chairs in my kitchen but it was not comfortable for quite a while ( about 6-8wks if I remember correctly) after surgery. It was easier to sit down but I could not stay there for any length of time.
This makes me laugh. My 81 yr old mother said the same when we caught her walking around unassisted at a little over a week post op from her second THR. Yep...”I don’t like it, it gets in my way!” Spunky old broad that she is.I am to use a gait assisted device until at least Monday. It is almost getting in the way at this point
Haha...I needed that chuckle, thank you! The PT mentioned setting alarms for every 50 minutes to make sure I am getting up. Between calls and getting caught up on everything while out, I am losing track of time, and sitting too long without moving (which isn't good even without recovery).I hope by Monday you find a chair that’s “just right” Goldilocks
Please do continue doing what you can at home for the swelling! It will help and hopefully you can get the Lymphatic Drainage while at your PT office each time you go.My biggest issue is the swelling, and the PT person did a lymph massage which felt soooo good. I wish that part could have lasted a little longer. I have done it a few times on myself, and need to perform more regularly.
Another thing we have in common, I have a 2008 vehicle, and since I am rarely driving these days, not in a hurry to replace.2005 Toyota Sienna fancy version
