Since my misstep on Friday, I have been feeling much more soreness and pain all around my hip joint.
Scared that I'd done some damage to the bone that's trying so hard to heal, I e-mailed Dr. Mayo's office to ask if I should be concerned. His patient coordinator, Keri, wrote back saying, "You should be fine; most patients who have taken a step experience more of a strain or soreness, nothing bone-wise."
Whew. While I'm disappointed to have regressed on my recovery, I'm relieved that things should be okay in the long run. I'm popping a few more Tylenol than usual, but won't let myself return to the oxycodone.
So please be careful, all you ladies currently or approaching recovering. Each step is important.
