Started my day with a green smoothie at the cafe down the block. Nice to get out of the house but was reminded I can’t sit flexed at 90 degrees for too long without discomfort :(.
Positive note, walked the farthest I have today since surgery! Which is like 4 blocks round trip lol.
malloryrunsthis, I will be on crutches for 1-2 more weeks (god willing!). I have PT for at least 12 weeks. I will progress to elliptical and then walking on the treadmill but idk when. If I can return to running it will be at least 6 months. They said it takes 6-12 months to feel “normal” again.
Meet my crutches aka my enemy these days.
I never knew how limiting crutches are, how being home all the time would cause crazy cabin fever, or that I would want to clean or cook so bad. Ready to be normal again. But in the mean time, here is my progress.
3 weeks post op today!
-down to 1 crutch!
-up to 15 min a day on the bike
-ROM in post op hip is improving
-at PT we have been increasing my strengthening and stretching exercises
Still haven’t been cleared to drive or take the train, so I continue to have to take cabs. I’ve easily spent $200 over the past couple of weeks 😢. I also am continuing to work from home.
All in all, things are going okay. However as a VERY independent person it’s so challenging to have to ask for help for almost everything. I also am going stir crazy but am hoping to be more mobile VERY soon.
Green smoothie! Love starting my day with greens. I’ve been trying to start with a smoothie or juice everyday.
Spinach, almond milk, ice, banana, blueberries, PB and spirulina.
Getting in a groove again!
Spinach, almond milk, banana, frozen berries, PB, maca powder and spirulina.
Last night I attempted to be normal and went out for dinner and drinks. Except for the whole crutches/pain part, it was great 😘😊.
Morning smoothie: banana, frozen berries, peanut butter, almond milk and maca powder.
Green juice, just what my body needs to help heal itself
