I Slept on My Side- 18 Days Post Op
I couldn't be more excited than I was when I tried to lay on my non operated side and I was able to. At first it was only for a few minutes, but last night I actually fell asleep on my side and stayed there for 2 hours. I am one who sleeps all the time on mysides- I have never really slept on my back so being able to roll over was a great thing. Also, I have been able to start putting more weight on my leg without the sharp pain behind my hip. I am allowed to put up to 50% weight on it, but I have barely been able to put anything on it without pain. Lately, I have been doing the walking motion on my crutches while putting quite a bit of weight on it. I think I am finally turning the corner into real healing. My incision looks good so I think the end of this week I will be able to start in the pool. Lets hope. Until then, I am feeling reall good.
