Today was the end of my official PT — Tomorrow is 12 weeks post THR — Going in to see my surgeon next week for a checkup. I find myself melancholy. Although I am very happy with my progress, I am sad to leave the supportive group I’ve come to enjoy greatly at my physical therapy office. The team worked to help alleviate my pains, work out the massive kinks, get me moving and strong again. I’m so thankful that my body has the ability to heal and grateful at how much I can already do — Easily walk 3-4 miles, ride bike hard for 40 min, weights and some yoga.
I’m excited to see what the next 12 weeks have to offer and I guess I’m a little scared since it’s all up to me! No PT staff pushing me 😉
The only question I want to follow up with my ortho next week is the leg length issue. I can feel the surgical leg is still longer than the other and causing some knee/IT band pain. I know it takes a long time to settle down; wondering if any other hip runners can share their experiences/timelines with this issue?
