Wonderful to hear, Dogmother. It is a comfort and encouragement to hear from the medical professionals, in person, that your progress is good. I’m happy you’re elated!
A great Thursday to you as you continue healing! :)

@Dogmother GREAT report from nurse!!! Glad you feel better about both incision and walking now.
You asked, hopefully it will get better? My PT told me, hip recovery averages 50 weeks. Given you still have 48 of those to improve in (all by itself your body does this, it's amazing...), I would certainly hope it will get better! It has for an awful lot of hippies here, including me!

I had a thought when I was stretching yesterday: the older hip, at 7, is easier to stretch in a certain way than the younger one, only 3. I wonder if in another 4 years the younger hip will be where the elder one is now. Bearing in mind of course the four birthdays the rest if my body will experience! :heehee:

Thank you @Dogmother yes all is well! Other than a hurricane bearing down on a house we own in Tidewater Virginia that is. Nobody currently lives there, and the yard has seen worse, but hurricanes are notoriously unpredictable!

Hi thank you for remembering my one month anniversary.
Not doing great some days good some days not I have hard swellings under my feet making it hard to exercise properly or ware shoes. Hard lump above my knee causing tightness. Also over scar.Of course only received on PT phone consultation so not able to get help through PT. So progress is slow.
I hope everyone else is doing well, getting stronger and out and about?

@Dogmother so sorry to hear you are having ups and downs, but it does come with the territory. We have a good day and perhaps overdo it a tiny tad, and the next day is anywhere from just a little blah to unable to stay awake but can't sleep for soreness.

Hard swelling on the feet sounds painful!!! Is this something you usually have? If not, have you called your surgeon? I have never heard of that, so can't make any bright comments.

Keep coming here, for support and entertainment. There are some lonnnng-running games in the social area

I am sorry to read this, Dogmother. it sounds uncomfortable. Have you tried icing and elevation? If not, please give it a try. Consider contacting the office of your surgeon to let them advise. Maybe you could forward a photo from your phone of the areas of concern and see what they think?

Stay in touch, we’re here for you. :)

Happy Two Month Anniversary!
Wondering how you’re doing since we last heard from you? Hopefully the swelling in your feet and knee has eased, or better yet, disappeared. Please leave an update as time allows. Will look forward to hearing from you.
I hope you have a wonderful week!
