In the past week I've:
- Had very, very little pain. No shooting pains, burning nerve pain or soreness in the joint. I now have the urge to take a step on my own, like it won't hurt at all to do so.
- Learned a new trick. I can put my socks on like a normal person: sitting in a chair and reaching down, rather than lying on my back and attempting bringing my leg to my chest.
- Attempted crutching on snow and ice. Not easy. Luckily, the latest batch has melted and we're back to dry land.
- Gave myself a pedicure and painted my toenails a festive bright red.
See how I felt at five weeks post-op LPAO.
