I haven't updated everyone on how therapy is going for awhile, and since I really don't have anything to blog about today, no better time than the present! (besides, I need to blog for my Daisies team)
I've been off my crutches for exactly 1 week today... if I concentrate & walk slowly (which is totally not in my nature), I can walk very steady and evenly. However, when I start to get a little speed going, I develop a little bit of a limp... gotta watch that!
Therapy continues to progress... still doing 1 day a week in the pool, and back to 2 days in the gym. I've made quite a bit of progress and have most of my mobility back, but strength really sucks yet. And I definitely don't have my stamina back!
They have been adding in some new exercises... squats, lunges, step-ups... and I can tell you one thing: my glutes definitely feel all of those! LoL If nothing else, maybe P.T. will help me tone up my backside a bit...
Still lookin' at 6-8 more weeks off work... when they first told me that before surgery, I couldn't imagine why it would take that long. Now that I'm halfway through my recovery period... I can definitely understand why! There is absolutely no way that I could even make it through an 8-hr shift, let alone the 12-hr shift that I'm scheduled for 3x a week.
So... that's the update for now... slow & steady progress...
