Physical Therapy is going good. I am definitely getting stronger and can do quite a lot but there are lots of things I'm not allowed to do yet. Some things are habits and really hard to remember like crossing your ankles in bed. They told me it could cause the hip to come out of joint during the first three months and we sure don't want that!
So it's all good here. Hope it is in your world too!
To update on the surgery, the left hip is being replaced next Thursday and I will now be in the hospital a few days they say and then a few weeks in rehab. Whatever they tell me to do I shall. I want to get back to my life as soon as possible.
I had a date the other night, it was okay, not great. Lots of baggage and I don't think I'm ready to take on anything like that but he was nice enough. I am having dinner with TCD one night soon too. That's it for my love life, hope yours is better than that! lol
Have a great day y'all. Do something nice for someone. Try not to get too political, it'll only make you nuts and what will it gain you?
The appointment with the orthopedic doctor did not go as planned. He said my hips (as in both of them) must be replaced. The first one is in two weeks. The second approximately three months later. The shot I thought I was going to get would only delay the inevitable so I'm going to listen to him. He's widely known as an excellent surgeon. Plus I know Dr. Wacks would never steer me wrong.
So it's not as bad as I thought. The surgery is about an hour and fine with a spinal and home that day or the next. I can go to a rehab if I want and insurance would pay for it so I'll decide that soon.
Maybe one day soon I'll blog with some good news!
It'll all be fine soon and I'll be back to Missbeehavin' again..,
So I had my hip X-ray and the pain is arthritis so I had to make an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon to see about getting a cortisone shot in the hip. If it works it could be good for six months to a year. I'm really having trouble walking and I'm hopeful it will help me. Getting old is a total drag. Doctor appointments have become my social life now. Blech.
I'm continuing to heal and feeling pretty good. The only thing that hurts from the surgery is the armpit where they took nodes to test. I'm still having the issue with my legs, especially the left hip but I'm working on that too.
I should be on the Piano Bar cruise now and look at their photos on Facebook every day. Seems they are having a great time.
I am bored and ready for a project. I'm doing cooking stuff as I am stil on the modified Ketogenic diet. Remember carbs feed cancer!
