My six-week post-op checkup.

This afternoon I had my six-week post-operation checkup…

It’s pretty crazy to think that it’s already been six weeks since my hip surgery

They took a couple of x-rays of my new hip. My doctor said that everything looked great on the x-rays. And he said that it looked like I was walking very well with my new hip. Everyone at The Christ Hospital did such an amazing job with this entire procedure. It’s incredible to think that just six weeks after my surgery, I’m walking unassisted without crutches or a cane and without any pain. I’m not going to post photos of the x-rays in this blog post but you can see them here, here, and both of them here. They’re not gross or anything but I know some people might be squeamish about that sort of thing. And that’s okay. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about seeing them. But I was kind of in awe of them. Looking at the x-rays, it’s just pretty crazy to think that piece of hardware is inside of me along with one very sizeable screw. And what really struck me after looking at the x-rays is that the whole thing didn’t hurt more. You’d think there would have been some amount of rather horrific pain afterwards. But that wasn’t the case at all. There was very little pain after my surgery and throughout the entire recovery process. I hope everything goes just as smoothly with my next hip surgery because this one wasn’t really that bad at all.

Next week, I have my last two sessions of physical therapy and then I’m done with everything for a few months until I have my other hip replaced at the end of June, physical therapy in July and I’ll be good as new by August.  😀🏥❤️
