So, anywho, on to my hips. All I can say is WOW. What a difference a couple weeks can make. My incisions are looking really good, and better than anything is that I keep forgetting my cane around the house. I've even walked out the front door a few times without it, then I see the steps and remember that I need it. The limp is getting less and less as my muscles get stronger. Another great thing is that I've lost 4 pounds this past week. I've been walking and doing my strength exercises, and trying hard to eat better. I'm getting better. I'm so determined to get healthy and in shape. Now that I've got more confidence and don't hurt all the time, it helps me feel more worth the effort. Prior to surgery, I used to wonder what the point was. Why get in shape when I still won't be able to enjoy my life and do things with my son. Now though, I don't have that horrendous arthritis pain and life is so much more enjoyable. I wait for the pain to come on the days that I do a lot of walking...but it never comes...and THAT is one of the best feelings I've ever experienced.
