Today should of been my 1year post, had the 29th Nov 2018 surgery not been cancelled.
However it was and I ended up having it after Christmas instead. Which honestly was a blessing in disguise, as I ended up enjoying December more. I’d bought all presents so I had zero stress over this time. And honestly the time flew by too.
So this last week, what happened?? Well it was hellish recovering from that physio session, featured in last weeks post. A lot of rest was needed. 4 days of complete rest in fact. Actual NOT moving recovery it was that painful.
But once I had recovered, I managed a small country walk better than I had before, though on the left I’m convinced the glute is NOT activating at all. Still quad dominant over that side.
Slopes are still affecting the knees, both going up and down. I’m still stopping at least 4 to 5 times to readjust hips and knees. Stronger on the right side though, keeps showing up the left now.
But the fresh air is doing my mind good, not being stuck indoors and constantly focusing on negativity.
Really pleased with my walking boots, light weight but so supportive on my ankles. Ehlers Danlos Syndrome makes my ankles prone to rolling over, even walking on flat normal surfaces. As well as super grippy. I hate slippy leaves at this time of year.
Well it’s time for another physio session, I wonder what she will do with me this week, hoping she will be kind. Will post it soon…
