Nothing much happened today. Basically day two in slug mode. No walks, no specific exercises. When the physical therapist evaluated me on Wednesday he said I was progressing well and was almost a week ahead of schedule as far as I was getting around and the repaired hip in general.
Each day I get a little bit better so I decided not to push it due to the pain, which is slightly better than yesterday. I took a half a Percocet in the early evening and it took the edge off. The swelling is almost all down to what it should be considering there was major surgery on that leg. I took a few steps using just one crutch just to see where I was progressing and I can do a couple of leg lifts with the repaired leg. My thinking is my getting around and about is providing somewhat of a workout and I want the bone to grow into the implant and all of the muscles and tendons that were re-attached to heal before I push it. After the two week check up I will ask the surgeon what I can do.
