I graduated to a cane today! Ah, it is so much better than the walker. I seem to be getting a lil better everyday. Hip not as painful as it was. I’m sleeping better too.
My pain pills have went from 8 a day down to 3, so I’m happy with that. I plan on getting outside and walking tomorrow with my cane. See how far I can go. Would love to get a 1/2 mile or even a mile maybe. We will see.
I really have to work on my side or glute muscles, the dr had to split my glute down the middle during procedure to gain access to my hipbone. He then sutured it back. It is extremely weak. During my PT today I couldn’t do one of the exercises at all. My therapist had me lay on my good side and try lift my left leg and I couldn’t get it up AT ALL. It was frustrating. I’m good in all the other exercises except that one. So, I have some work to do.
Until next time…..
