Pleased to say all is quiet on the hip front, although clearly I did too much yesterday as my operated leg quad muscle was aching all day on day 5. So that prompted a total lower body rest. Boring but I feel necessary, as I have Physio the following day anyways at the Hospital.
I chose to do free weights so I’d at least got a workout done, making me feel productive and it helps mentally as well as physically. And not forgetting to sunbathe, seriously can’t believe the luck we’ve been having with all this glorious sunshine and warmth.
My new appointment for my 6week post injection date came through, it’s for August 21st. Here I think I’ll push for more answers on scar tissue and if there’s any point in delaying a hip replacement now?!
Day 6 saw me at the hospital for physiotherapy, so I can ask advice and let her assess if there’s any movement improvement, better range or stamina. As it’s so hard to gage it yourself. Awoke with awful Glute pain, not sure why though? Seems weird it was the Quad muscle, now it’s the opposite Glute muscle?
Front leg raise
Then front leg raise to abduction
Football between knees hip bridges, then into sitting up and hip adduction.
Prone lying on front, bend knee and raise.
All these actually eased off some muscle aches. But it did hurt the groin so I’m having to rest up and increase painkillers. Bored though, so I think I best watch the football to entertain me.
