Set Backs and Progress
Sunday, July 08, 2018
I don't really think I overdid any exercise but I woke up one morning with pain in my leg and by an hour later I could not bear any weight on that leg. We went to the hospital to rule out anything serious like a dislocation of the new hip. The hip was fine but the Dr thought I probably had a tear in the muscles and sent me home to my painkillers and put me back to using a walker and limited movement. I saw a Physiotherapist a couple of days later and she confirmed soft tissue injury and I am to be doing less exercise than on the second day post surgery.
I would not say I am doing well now but I am doing quite a bit better than last week. I am having more aches and pains than usual but I am sure that it will be better once I start moving and stop sitting around so much. I am sure my mood will cheer up too once I get out of the house a bit more.
