Good Doctor’s Report

This morning I went to see the surgeon. After waiting an hour I finally was called in only for him to send me for a x-ray.

So, away I go using nothing but my four-legged walker. Once again, more waiting. After the x-ray back to see the surgeon.

He came in and told me he looked at the x-ray and gave me a great report. I can now put as much weight, as is comfortable, on the replaced hip. So, I can go back to using my wheeled walker, but for the most time I walk around my home with just a cane.

I spoke to him about the exercises that I was given by the therapist. I mentioned about the exercise where you simulate making a snow angel. He became upset and told to stop the exercise. His reason, you wouldn’t make those type of moves even with a good hip. So, when I see the therapist tomorrow I am going to ask why the contradiction.

It feels great that I no longer have to see the surgeon and that I have gained some more freedom of movement.

So dear reader, this almost sixty year old guy has just jumped one more hurdle on my way to reaching my goal of walking around outdoors. Well, maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks…lol…chuckles!

    Yay! That’s wonderful news 🙂
    Isn’t it strange how every doctor has a different idea of what can help you? It can make it frustrating at times but for the most part confusing since you never know if you’re doing the right thing the right way.
    Congrats on the great news!
