I can’t believe that it has been 12 weeks since I had my left hip replaced! I saw my surgeon today and we are both pleased with my recovery thus far. I have full range of motion back. Though I don’t think I can sit criss cross applesauce yet! I have no real desire to […]

It is day 31 post op. The pain in my hip was gone immediately after surgery and that is a tremendous relief! The surgical pain, swelling, plus the nerves and muscles all waking up and realigning has been another story. However, the last two days have been so much better on the pain amd swelling […]

I have never been so happy to drive! Today I had to drive myself to the chiropractor and then later to PT. It was glorious! I love the simple blessing of being able to drive again!My first appointment today was with the chiropractor. He was surprised about the big leg length difference but he had […]
