    Heeeyyy...:chinstroke: you sure that one on your avatar isn't a picture of one of mine.
    Looks just like it.:heehee: Now yours WILL look like mine.
    Isn't it odd to first see it. I thought so...especially when it didn't feel like all that hardware was in there.

    It is odd to see it at first. I took a quick peak in the tech's booth as I walked by to see if I could get a look and I saw the single view and I'm so impressed to see these new hips and know that it's inside of me, making me work better.

    I saw my OS yesterday. He looked over my xrays, checked out my leg strength with both legs, checked the incisions and removed my right hip restrictions.

    I don't have to see him until next May again because I'm healing so well. He said a check in September would be a waste of both of our time.

    He also told me to start aquafit, which I have plans to start next week.

    I have another 9 physio visits left, and today have my assessment for the medically supervised fitness program that starts in September.

    I had a back adjustment yesterday and that straightened out my wobble when I walk.

    :egypdance:Glad to hear all is going so well.
    I did some pool therapy and it is splendid.
    Do take it slow at first... do half of what you feel up to...it can sneak up on you. Easy to overdo in the pool (speaking from experience, here)
    And it never hurts until later:unsure:

    Hope you have a great weekend. :)

    Happy Four Month Anniversary to Lefty!
    Happy Two Month to Righty a couple days early :wink: Thanks for the update. It seems you're doing really well.
    I hope you have a wonderful Summer as you continue healing. :SUNsmile:
