I am now 100% weight bearing now and, well, ran into a bit of a setback. Two days ago was my first day of full weight bearing. I was feeling great. I could stand with all my weight on one foot for a couple of seconds and could do a few horrendous appearing steps. I was thrilled. But yesterday, when I was getting out of bed, my back caught me and, whoa!, did it hurt. I couldn't stand or walk with any weight on my left leg yesterday. Extremely uncool. I ended up taking muscle relaxants and taking it extremely easy. I had no choice to take it easy since half of my exercises hurt me. I think this was definitely my body's way of telling me to slow down and be careful. This morning it feels a bit better. It is still there but it isn't taking my breath away. I already tried taking a few steps and it was decent. Well, I wouldn't even call it decent, but I could do it without horrific pain in my back.
I'm still not sleeping great as I wake up every single time I move. But this is par for the course at this point and I cannot wait to get the other side done so that I can move on with life. My left hip has pain with flexion at the 110 degree mark, but I push through it, as instructed, and can reach 125-130 degrees of flexion. Albeit, with pain. I hope that a simple injection at my post-op check will do the trick. I'm really paranoid about scar tissue, but, I am doing everything possible to keep this hip from developing scar tissue.
