I guess I can't say 'back to work' because I never really worked, but was in school. Nonetheless, I'm back into a tiring routine that is in fact work because now I am getting paid. I am not gonna sugar coat this, working approximately 12 hours a day right now (with the odd 14 and 16 hour shift in the upcoming weeks)...SUCKS.
Not only is my stamina and physical endurance down, but my left hip is 17 weeks post op and my right hip is still pre-PAO. My left hip is still painful, mostly in the anterior portion of the hip with a nagging ache that is hard to localize. I hope that it are the screws. One thing I noticed since I have started being on my feet all day is that after I sit for 10 or more minutes, my hip hurts when I weight bear for the first couple of steps, then it goes away. It is quite odd, again, I hope that it are the screws.
I've officially scheduled my RPAO for September 30th, 2014: RPAO, R hip scope, L screw removal. I just put the countdown onto my phone and saw that it is only 87 days until surgery. I am closer to my RPAO than my left! (since I am 126 days post op from my LPAO). The thought of doing this again makes my stomach hurt, but I have no choice. I do believe that my right side will have better results than my left side given it hurts less than the left side. I'm so sick and tired of feeling so tired and sore all of the time. I can barely do anything that requires significant standing and/or walking. Just shopping around a couple of stores requires me to sit down and rest some bc I hurt.
