    So glad you are doing so well!:tada:
    I'm glad the injection has helped you hold off and enjoy some life with no hip pain!
    Have a great week and make sure you balance all that activity with some downtime.:ice:
    Don't want you hitting the Overdid It Club!

    How's my friend with the mischievous little expression doing?
    I hope you had a lovely Easter Sunday.

    Happy Three Month Anniversary!

    Hi! Crazy busy with work and life, but excellent. At three months post op I am happy to report that I am pain free. I have some slight numbness around the scar, but I really don't care about that. I also still have a little less stamina than before - but I think that will come back. Finally, I continue to have weakness when I raise my right thigh. I believe this is from my first hip surgery when the PSOAS tendon was released. I recall that surgeon warning me I would have permanent weakness as a result, and I think that is what this is.
    Otherwise, I am completely my old self. I am working, swimming, biking and practicing yoga. My husband and I are gearing up for Bike NYC's 40 mile tour of New York's five boroughs next week. I am blessedly normal right now. Allelulia.
    @Layla, thank you for checking on me. You are great. Are you having spring yet in Minnesota? It is here - cherry trees and azaleas are in bloom, the bees are out, and the osprey are back and active. I am loving it.

    Hey :wave:
    What a great update and I thank you for taking the time to share.
    I'm happy for you that you're doing so well. I had some of that numbness in different areas around my scar also lasting up to around nine months post op I'm guessing. It slowly decreased over time until all was well.
    You're pain free...that's awesome! The 40 mi tour of the boroughs sounds fun. It's great you're able to do that at 3 1/2 mo post op. You'll have to let us know how it goes.

    Thanks for the kind words. Spring has arrived here but it's not as beautiful as yours sounds, nothing is blooming or buzzing here yet but thankfully it will be shortly. Stay safe on your bike tour and continue enjoying life as you seem to be doing. You're like a ray of sunshine! :yes: :wink:
