Post THR. This morning I woke up for the first time and felt I didn’t need any pain meds at all — Not even the Tylenol. I took a dose before I went to bed and had been taking a dose upon waking to kick the overnight pain out. Today, a little creaky and stiff, but not real pain and not enough to want meds.
I know it’s a tiny milestone but I’ll take it! I backed a bit off on my activity; think I was doing too much (even though it felt like barely anything to me) and it has made a world of difference. Going to the gym in the morning and just doing my PT exercises, some light upper body work and some stretching. Limiting my stairs/walking a bit as I had a lot of pain/tightness in the front of my hip and that has gone way down. Will try and increase again maybe in a few days.
Happy Monday everyone! 🙂
