I am done with physical therapy, and I am trying to get back my stamina. I used to speedwalk over 5mph. Now I am sadly at 4 mph. I am currently doing 2.3 miles 3 x per week. I am trying so hard to progress and I have some pain when I lie down at night... and I get TIRED! I am so over not being myself. How many people take this long to get their stamina back? I have my X-rays in about 6 weeks to see the healing. I want to get back to aerobics but I know it will take time. I thought I was doing so well and here I am on this forum whining.
I had a deep tissue massage for the scar tissue and my left side is pretty sore from nerve pain I think. I feel like I got kicked by a horse, even the skin is sore. It has been this way for months. I know it isn't "real". How many of you have that kind of thing? I am 62 BTW, but I did hi impact aerobics until 6 months before the surgery and I couldn't do it anymore. I want to loose the ten pounds I have gained. Help! Tell me how you all did this?
Thank you for listening to me whine. It usually isn't my style.
