I went back to work on Monday (3weeks post op) and so far so good!
Wasn't half as bad as I thought it would be.
Still not sleeping great, but walked 8 miles yesterday and again today (feet are blistered thought lol)
(The walk is my commute to work, 4 miles each way)
I have been warned by half the world to take it easy and I promise I am listening to my body and not pushing myself too hard.
Saw my surgeon and has X-rays on Monday afternoon and he was very pleased with my progress.
Still a bit of nerve pain on the left leg at night but starting physio on Monday which will also help iron out my trocanter tendonitis (which at present is mainly hurting at night)
Good health and pain free days to you all!!
