Tomorrow, I hope, is the day I hear from Dr. Mayo. I hope he tells me everything is healing fine and that I may start weight bearing (even if it's not 100 percent.) I'm terribly curious how it's going to feel to put my full weight on my leg for the first time in eight weeks. Eight weeks!
I've been feeling good, though not much different than I did at seven weeks. I still have the nagging pain when I sit; my hip is still tender on the outside and a bit stiff on the inside. My scar looks about the same as well, but I think some of the numbness may be going away! (Four week and eight week comparison below.) I'm sleeping much better, though still with a pillow under or between my knees. The best news yet: I can SNEEZE! It hurts a bit, but at the same time, it feels ... so ... good!
I made a physical therapy appointment for Monday evening, but I don't know if I should keep it if I haven't heard back from Dr. Mayo by then. Right now, though, it's something to look forward to, and all us Hip Sisters know how important that is, right, Kirsten?
I can't believe it's been eight weeks.
