Went and got a hair cut today. The first real day out. I little scary, I must say.

    Just becareful, don't over due and take your time, no hurrying. ; } You'll know when your ready to give up the cane.
    I had both knees replaced (at the same time),10 yrs. ago, and used the walker almost 2 months. I was so afraid of falling ! We live in an old 2 story house, so have a lot of steps to climb up and down. I use to go down backwards, till I wasn't afraid. It was just easier !
    My Dr, had told me to use it as long as I needed it. I would know when I could let it go. He was right. Same thing with the cane.
    Hip surgery is a bit easier, not to be little any pain or anything you had, it's just a less invasive surgery.
    I tell ya' one thing, it was the worse pain I've ever had !!! The therapy was He_ _ !
    My DH said PT stands for Pure Torture ! I told him at the time that was an understatement ! LOL
    I know what you mean, it being scary the first time out. Thats a normal feeling. It will get easier and less scary as you get stronger and more confident. One day at a time and before you know it you'll be back on your bike and get your sea legs back. ; }
    Anyway, you just take good care of yourself and be really careful.
    I'm sure you'll be as good as new in no time!
    Take care now!
    Love ya', Flutterfli emoticon
