My reunion with Jennifer (my physical therapist) followed. She, too, was in awe of how strong I was. Despite that, she was able to find a host of things that are wrong with my alignment and flexibility. Among the top:
- My sacrum is uneven.
- The bottom of my pelvis is really uneven. Off by an inch.
- The muscles in my lower back are pulled too tight.
- Hip flexor is very tight.
We only lined up two more physical therapy sessions, as I'm doing so well.
After pt, I made my way to the gym. Did 11 minutes on the elliptical and then lifted lower body weights: quads, hamstrings, calves, gluts, adductors and abductors. I'm lifting 30 percent to 75 percent of what I was before surgery. So I have a lot of room to grow, but the goal is to take it easy as I work to get stronger.
