Finally making progress

This is really just a progress report. I had a THR in early May 2020. For a month post op, effectively I had no pain and really very little discomfort. When my one month post op visit occurred with my surgeon, he noted that my femoral implant had subsided about 5mm. Putting me back on basically bed rest with minimal walker maneuvering each hour, for another month. Second visit presented better x-rays and he put me on a cane for 2 weeks.  When I came off the cane, is when the discomfort began. It really was not joint pain, but muscle pain in my hip flexors and in my vastus lateralis. I used Tylenol and Ibuprofen to deal with that pain. Finally now, in January it seems as if all is improving a little every day. I am walking, cycling and working my legs in the gym. I pray that I can begin running again by the end of January.

The recovery period does come to an end. I am looking forward to running again.
