Well I am 6 weeks out and doing well. I go for my check up next week. Despite all the mom hype, I plan to ask for a left hip resurfacing to be scheduled before the end of the year. I hope My X-rays say I am ready, cuz my body does.
I have been walking every day and enjoying being outside even in the Alabama extreme heat. It has been tough with having lots of leg muscle issues and lower back issues that have kept me from feeling 100%. The buckling has become worse in the unoperated hip. Yesterday i went for my 1 mile walk and I started limping half way through on the un- operated side. It was the weirdest sensation to know my right hip was good and strong and the left hip pain kept increasing the further I walked. I think it was the first time that I could really feel the OA pain was truly gone in the right hip!!
I am hoping that the lower leg pain along the shin ( not all the time but definately annoying) will resolve with more excercises. The lower back pain is from spondilolisthesis which I had pre-op. dr. Gross said if the back symptoms get really bad, injections( which helped in the past) are ok by him anytime post-op. I think I just need to get to PT which will get me some strength and flexibility back.
I have been in my pool the last couple weeks to beat the heat. I have been pedaling around and doing a few laps. It feels good, but since I was never in shape I wondering if I am making myself sore!!
