Week 6 starts today. Progress so far has been slow complicated by low blood pressure issues. Very pleased to see that PT is not deemed to be essential to a good recovery as when I stood to do the exercises I felt faint! My expectations about recovery were very unrealistic, like childbirth, other THR acquaintances have forgotten the pain and focus on the successful outcome! Am walking still using 2 sticks and limited to round the house and occasionally in the garden. Can go up and down stairs using sticks and am coping with limited range of normal activities. Looking forward to driving again - perhaps 3 weeks time?
