One Month Post-Op

If you would have asked me if I’d feel this great one month after surgery, I probably would have laughed. Now it is hard for me to remember that I actually had surgery! Something amazing happens between the 3rd and 4th week out – you seem to regain so much. I have 2 more weeks of hip precautions to follow so I do have to pay attention. But I haven’t needed my crutch/cane for 5 days now – I’m on my own!!

Really, the thing that lets me know that I had surgery is that I have NO pain anymore. I still can’t quite get my brain around it but I’m getting closer. I love being able to walk and will never take it for granted again.

The snow has melted quite a bit and I was able to go walking downtown for a few hours. I even looked at a new mountain bike!
