Day 73 Struggling High Pain Day

Archive, Arthritis, Health, Hips, Hypermobility, Hip replacement, SURGERY

I seem to have a few good days then a crash down to the bottom. Clearly my pacing skills are pants, and I’m either doing too much, or the scar tissue just won’t let me go beyond the strength I have.

Yesterday I had an amazing day of physio, I felt strong, and like I was progressing, but this morning I feel like crap!

I went to sit down and my god it felt like it was ripping as I hovered above the seat, just under the scar, it’s swollen and hurts like hell. Always around the butt, piriformis area. Hope hot water bottles work enough. Even the groin decided to join the pain party!! Yes I’m moaning, but my god it hurts.

But I’m not giving up, technically I have 1 year to push it to see how far it can go, maybe I need to dial it back a little and respect it a bit more. Think marathon not race. Maybe I’m too eager to get it fixed, that I’m hindering it by going too fast?

I think the flare up of pain is from trying to work out both legs, as some exercises require me to stand alone on that leg, and although I use a walking stick, perhaps it’s not enough, and I’d be better suited to a crutch for now?

So that’s my future plan for next week, but as it’s the weekend. I’m going to relax, read and visit family members instead of physio. Do you have anything good planned this weekend?
