I’m officially 5 weeks post op. I can’t wait for the magical 6th week!
I’m still sitting, walking, resting and exceptionally bored. I’ve watched most of the Netflix films that interest me and am finally making a push to complete Shantaram. I think I’m looking forward to going back from work just for a bit of a mental challenge.
Having said that, I reached a small milestone today. While I have pushed Nora in her stroller a couple times without issue(with my wife), today was the first day I ventured out on my own with our dog. I’ve had him out for 3 walks already today and we’re both doing fine. I’m very happy to have a companion now for all of my walks!
The odd numb feeling on my left side is starting to subside and I’m beginning to think most of the discomfort and numbness that I feel is a direct result of sleeping on my side. I’m sure I’ve still got some swelling and tenderness back there and I’m waking myself up at night with little tweaks/twinges when I’m rolling onto my side.
My shins feel 100% better since switching to runners as well. It just really sucks tying them up! 🙂
