This is the first year since 2006 that I have zero commitments regarding my hips. No doctor's appointments, no physical therapy, no thoughts about healing.
I'm doing very well, continuing to make progress the right hip that has been hurting since surgery.
Around the 14-month post-op mark, I was finally able to sit cross-legged again. It's still a little uncomfortable, but getting easier each time. The burning sensation is getting better and so is my strength and flexibility. My right thigh is still a bit smaller than my left, proof that there still is work to be done.
I'm still in awe at how long the recovery process is, but I'm happy that I keep doing better and better.
Happy new year!
