Feeling Too Good- This Isn't Normal
Today is 3 weeks and 3 days post pao and I feel way too good. I actually tried to go up the steps today leading with the wrong foot because I forgot which hip was done. At this point, I no longer have to grab my leg to lift it into bed, I don't have to hold my leg getting out of the car, and I can put all 50% weight on my leg without any pain. I am a little freaked out because it is not normal, even for me, to feel this good less than a month after my surgery. I am having to make a concentrated effort to hold myself back so I don't do anything to hurt the hip or bend the screws. I promise I won't do anything my doc says I can't do, but I think I am going to call on Tuesday to ask again about riding a bike on the days I can't get to the pool. I think my bones are healing fairly well so maybe the biking will be allowed. If not, I will hold off until my 6 week appointment with x rays. I don't want to ruin the surgery so I will follow directions.
