Yesterday was officially my 6 week mark and woohoo for this past surgery being a complete and total success. I haven't had a hip feel like this in years and years. Absolutely incredible. It can bend, rotate, twist without any pain or catching. I wish I could do a happy dance, but I am still on the sticks. I don't seem to be able to get off them just yet. I did two days ago, hobble around the house without crutches for a few hours, but this landed me with a lovely groin pinch when I decompress weight. So back onto them. It will come, sooner rather than later.
I'm already getting a bit antsy about my upcoming appointment in a month (I can tell because I had a dream about how my surgeon may react at my upcoming appointment...although in a very unrealistic and weird way!) I know that I am gonna be a doctor in a few years, but I hate (HATE) going to doctors. Especially surgeons! Every time I go to an orthopaedic surgeon, they tell me that I need more surgery. Considering my track record, I would say that it would be normal to be apprehensive going back for a follow-up. Especially since my left hip is still not perfect. I don't expect it to be perfect, but I need it to be able to hold me up, without pain, for very long days when I return back to school in February. I really think it needs a bit of (non-surgical) help. I don't know what the surgeon has up his sleeve...I hope something good :)
