Well folks the two week post op timeline has come and gone with great news and progress. I’m able to walk around crutch free, though I still use the crutches outside for stability since we are buried in snow. Getting up and down the stairs is still a real challenge since I’ve lost so much strength in my quad, I tried to walk up the stairs unaided and after the third step I thought my leg was going to fold under me. My PT is really happy with my mobility and hip flexion AROM. I’m pain free for the first time in two and a half years, though I am still very tight and sore from the surgery, but surgery sore is so much better that injury pain! I am still doing my isometrics three times a day and yesterday I was cleared to go for short walks (less than a mile) on non PT days. We are very careful up here since there is no clean place to walk, this is interior Alaska and we are buried in snow, the roads are icy and the trails are uneven and very soft for this type of rehab, but perfect for cross country skiing! God I miss skiing already! I’m packing the hip in ice after every PT appointment and after my walks to help reduce the inflammation, not to mention it just feels really good! Yesterday at my PT we removed the bandages and inspected the incision. It looked amazing, healing really well and no sign of infection, yay! Moving on!
