It says day 24, but I actually accomplished this at day 21. It was pure heaven.
I had practised in the bath fully dressed, to ensure I could get in and out. I had my door open and husband nearby, so I also felt safe.
I held onto the side of the bath and lifted my operated leg over first, I then put the other leg in. Put my operated leg more diagonal, and gently lowered myself down. Perfect.
Added a candy cane #lush bubble bar. Then bath salts and used a bath scrub by #theorangetree I’m starting to feel a bit more ‘me’
Coupled with finally getting a decent sleeping position, I’m almost human again!! *Could of been a one or two night wonder*
I’ve tried to sleep on my side, but it’s too weird, too painful for me just yet. So I’m taking the stomach sleeping position for now. But even that isn’t infallible, I do periodically have to shift back to my back sadly.
Starting to think that side sleeping ain’t ever going to happen!
Still haven’t done any physio since my day out in Birmingham, I darent. The outer thigh is throbbing after walking a bit, or doing a chore. Either bursitis? If possible after having bursa removed back in 2006 and IT band lengthened. Or end of stem pain? Not sure what it is, but I’m not going to aggravate it further. Definitely feeling the one step forward two steps back recovery so far.
