Now ,I am 11 weeks post op.... I am going strong!
It was been very difficult to sit back and watch other people doing everything for me at the start of my recuperation from my hip replacement surgery.I am the person who has always looked after others so it was very difficult to sit back.My nursing background kept telling me to take it easy and follow the Doctors orders!
The physio has been going well.It is amazing just how much muscle strength I really did not have in my right leg , gradually it is finding it's way back.They have upped the ankle weight to 7.5 Lbs.I now walk around the house without my cane.
I am back walking everyday,30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the afternoon out side if possible ( started yesterday doing the two 30 min.). I do take the cane with me out side for the balance. My husband's pedometer has been very useful me and I did order a new one yesterday for myself. Over the past 3 weeks I have gradually increased the number of steps and yesterday the count was 10,108! I plan on staying around that number.........I am not going to push too hard.So nice NOT to have ANY PAIN when I am walking.
The is back in action again.
These days I am a happy camper much easier to live I am sure. I am getting stronger everyday.
Thank you to ALL my Spark Friends for your help, support and just being here everyday you ALL are so !
