Well, the day has come and gone. Jan 16th. The surgery went without a hitch. I am fine. Of course my left leg feels longer than the right. But am told that will dissipate over time. Stayed over night in the hospital. Came home, moving well, went off pain meds on Saturday–surgery was Wed, didn’t need my walker anymore on Sunday. Walking with no assistance. No real issues. Have been to PT twice, am a full week ahead of my recovery. The feeling that something is there and healing is the main thing at this point. Just taking everyday one at a time. I had the posterior THR, and I have a huge scar in addition to my first scar. My sister says “battle scars”. It had to be made a little longer than normal to get the old hardware out. However, the Dr. did put my ink back together perfectly. 🙂 You know, priorities. lol Yes, I have tats. I love them. so, now I am just continuing my recovery, and waiting for the day that I can walk a mile–which will be soon, then gradually get back to my running and training for the Wall. I will be buying a ZeroRunner in another month or so, just as soon as I am cleared to exercise fully. I have been wanting one for some time, and thought that I would wait to get it after the surgery. Its therapy. So, next year Tom, I’ll do the 3rd Annual HR Zero Marathon. 🙂 Thank you to everyone that has been so supportive, it helped me a lot. I will make periodic posts on progress. But so far, no issues, very minimal pain, a week ahead of my recovery process, walking with no assistance. I ROCK. 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
