I saw my surgeon today (1st time since surgery on 6/9) He is very pleased with how I am doing. Ask if I had done any PT. Reminded him that I went to Rehab center and then I have had PT at home. Will start at office now. I can drive - if I feel like it. Take a tub bath (YEAH) and go to the pool and hot tub. He is ordering me a bone stimulator and more pain meds. I got the dream ortho. surgeon! He explains everything to me and did before surgery and none of our questions are not taken seriously. He did remind me that I had major surgery, and a little older and I am going to hurt, but I can go to work August 25. All the doctors in this ortho. group have been wonderful. Have seen knee, arm/shoulder, hip, nerve testing and some for "I have a pain here - what is it?" They all take me serious and explain it to me so I can understand
I don't have to go back to my surgeon until end of September and maybe(?) we'll see a little bone growth.
I did do too much walking and standing after we left his office. So I am paying for it tonight and then 101 degree weather didn't help. Thank God my daughter was driving cause I took a pain pill on the way home and dozed for a minute or two several times.I am going to miss my afternoon naps when school starts.
Just had so share my good news.
