It’s been a weird old summer holidays, we’ve had a lot to do especially in the month of August. So fitness, physio has taken a back seat of late.
But Tuesday saw me heading off to physio at the hospital. Where after over two weeks from doing any physio at home, it was a killer workout.
We did the usual
- Stationary bike level 2 x 5mins
- Ball squeeze hip bridges x 20reps
- Single leg hip bridges x 15reps
- Single leg raise ankle weighted x 15reps
- Prone knee raise ankle weighted x 15reps
- Kettle bell squats x 15reps
- Walking lunges with dumbbells x 20reps
- Duck walking green banded x 20reps
Walked, well waddled out thinking OMG my groin is killing me, I do hope this pain settles down, it feels exactly like before surgery!! Physio thinks it may be osteophytes or loose bone spurs, so need to keep an eye on this pain, and see what activities cause it most.
Then Wednesday I had to see the council about a blue badge, as I feel I benefit a lot from one, parking closer at times is a godsend. So armed with letters, splints, compression gloves and prescriptions (as they ask for them all) answering questions, and hoping for a good outcome. But it’s a 4 week wait to find out. I’d say fingers crossed but that’s not going to happen with my Hands!! Not feeling hopeful though.
Thursday it’s MiCats for my hands, been waiting for this appointment since April. I’m hoping but also dreading it, as I’d like the steroid injections, but I know they hurt a lot too.
Gutted the ultrasound machine wasn’t available, so my earliest possible date for a steroid injection is 23rd September, I think I’m just doing the left hand first (walking stick hand) and have an open appointment for 3 months so I can return for the right hand.
