5 Months Post-Op
« on: September 02, 2014, 05:12:48 PM »
Just a quick update for what it's worth to others.  Today is my 5 month post-op (surgery on April 2nd).  I continue to go to PT twice a week and do my own exercises and PT during the off days.

I also work as a college football official in the fall, so I was very worried that my season would be in jeopardy when I had my surgery.  This past week I was able to work 2 pre-season scrimmages.  I did get sore in the groin area, but overall was pleasantly surprised with how I felt. I am able to run, back pedal, turn and open hips, change of direction, etc.  It's not 100% yet.  I've been very careful to listen to my body and not overdue it.  I also have been extremely diligent with PT and think that has really helped with my recovery process.

Just wanted to post for any value that others can get from my experience.  As mentioned, I am not 100%, but my doctor has given me the green light to work on the field.  My PT says I should definitely expect to feel soreness but both he and the doctor are confident I won't damage anything at this point.  The Doc just doesn't want me road running until after the 6 month mark.  Not sure if I will go back to that anyway.

Sounds great. If all goes well in a few months you'll be feeling better than you did before the hip started hurting.
