Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Ten Week Update Bilateral Dr. Marwin
« on: January 26, 2012, 04:32:08 PM »
Tuesday was my 10 week anniversary, so this morning, as I started my walk,  I decided I needed a new benchmark.  I walked one hour out and one hour back for about 6.75 miles.  I was feeling great the whole way with none of the muscle fatigue and achiness from my 5 mile walk at 6 weeks.  I did get stiff and didn't realize it until I dropped a glove at around 5 miles and had to bend over to pick it up.  Walking felt great and I kept up a good pace.

I finished up with PT at 7 weeks and started at a gym for the first time in my life and now go there 3 times a week starting out on an ellipticalal trainer, first time also, for 22 minutes right now and then moving on to a complete strength workout.  It's all feeling good.

My bicycle is lagging behind but I am getting in a few easy outdoor rides and at the pool I'm just starting to get rid of the pull buoy and learn how to swim again after two and a half years of not being able to kick so I'm really feeling great.

This recovery has been like a miracle.  I never thought I'd be feeling so good so soon and I'm looking forward to bigger and better things to come.

Can't wait!

Congrats Woody, you continue to amaze.   I'm also amazed at how it's been going, I have never had a medical experience like this, with so much relief and so much steady and continuous improvement, not a picnic at points to be sure, but so persistently positive.

That's awesome, Woodstock. Good mix of activities too - make sure you keep up the balanced workouts, a lot of gym work addresses mostly the larger muscles.
