The weeks are flying by, and with the warmer weather we as a family are getting busier, which is lovely. But boy oh boy I’m still paying a high price for any activities.
Which I wholeheartedly admit is gutting. I truly wanted, wished and hoped that by now this magic bullet surgery would be the answer and I’d be skipping into the sunset.
And while this surgery has been amazing, it’s clearly not the sole issue I thought it was. I’m struggling with my hands alot, but not just them though my ankles, knees and shoulders too and I feel cheated. All I’ve ever wanted is my life back, who I was at 32 and I’ve chased this dream headlong ever since.
I had no concept that I was literally fixing the hips to then swap the goal post and need intervention on other joints.
So I’m not going to compare to others healing times anymore, it is what it is. I’m not sure if it’s the Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Hip Dysplasia or Arthritis that is ruling my life, but something is, more than I care to admit too.
It sucks that I have some issues, I have to remember not to focus on them, I need to remember the positive thoughts and drive my energies into them.
No physio appointment booked this week, so physio at home is foundation basics to keep movement going and no stress out other joints. Using ankle weights for resistance.
- Hip abduction x 15 reps
- Hip extension x 15 reps
- Hip extension (backwards) x 15 reps
- Hip flexion x 15 reps
- Single leg lunge on areobic step x 15 reps
- Monster walk x 30 steps
Going to work on these while I await the next physio appointment.
Found these exercises on Pinterest and I will try to add some of these are well, later on in the week.
