The surgery went well. He said it was a good thing I did it and it should fix the problem. The tendon tear was about the size of a dime, but there was a lot of calcification he cleaned out. He said that that was probably causing more pain than the tear.
I can stand on two legs, but he won't let me use the right leg to walk. He said I can undo what he did.
In August, it wouldn't have bothered me at all to lay around all day. Now, it is driving me nuts!!! I am so used to getting up and walking everyday. I went from 10,000+ steps a day to 500 one legged steps.
I am still managing to lose weight however. I am down to 164.8 which is a far cry from the 195 a year ago. I thought I was going to put on weight as my choices haven't been the best, but I still keep portion control. I don't eat a whole anything. We got pizza last night and I had two pieces. A year ago, I probably would have eaten half the pizza. We have had ice cream in the house for the last month and it takes 2 weeks for 4 of us to go through it. I allow myself a scoop every other day.
We haven't been eating out at all really for the past two months. It is amazing how much money that saves. I am going stir crazy however and would like to go out once. The problem is I am short and my car is a CRV. Unless we find a curb, I can't get back in the car
I have two weeks to go until I am weight bearing again. I have watched all the shows on Netflix and I am sooo bored!!! I just want to be able to open the door myself and go outside. Unfortunately, our screen door is very difficult and we have some high steps coming into the house. DH doesn't trust me and I promised him I would not go outside without someone to spot me.
The shower is done and looks fantastic.
Now if I could only go in with no help.
JC has been fantastic this show season. He is undefeated. His next show isn't until the middle of July and I will be able to walk by then.
Just need to keep it together another couple of weeks!!!
