Best of luck to you skiddy. Also have back issues. But, I'm too much of a coward to go through with the surgery.
You will do great!

Hey Skid!

Missed this last night so I'm late to the party. By now I imagine that you're already done and in recovery.

Heal up quick and keep us posted!

Hi. Thanks for the well wishes. I can't answer individual posts at the moment because there's no internet here and I'm on my phone. Here's an update though.

The surgery went well. I'm out of the hospital. I'm walking around with the help of a cane but I've been trying to cut back on the cane when I can.

Skid!

Dont push it! Dont stagnate either!

What you do right here and now is likely going to determine the rest of your life. Choose wisely.

Holy cow - slow down pal! You're making the rest of us look bad. Seriously though that is fantastic news. Don't push it though. I just had my right hip replaced in Dec. and I thought I'd be jogging and mountain climbing in the first month but as my body realigns to the new longer leg and everything tries to realign I've had plantar fascitis in one foot, multiple strained back episodes and lately runner's knee (so painful), so here I am 9 months later and still doing lots of couch-ing.

Take care!!! So glad for the update.

10 years later, and my hip still gives me pretty big problems. Now, it probably didnt help that I broke it again less than a year after the surgery.. But its definitely still a big issue!

My experience was that stretching helped more than pretty much anything else. At least until the second break did something.. weird.. where I cant stretch it far enough to matter.

My prescription, as a pseudo expert in horrific health issues to anyone going through these things, is to take it easy right after the surgery (wherever it is) until the incision site is pretty well healed. Still move around, thats important, but we can really screw things up by our desire to get back to "normal" asap. Then, moving on to PT and slowly building back up to what might be new limitations. Trying to get back to where we were before the injury or surgery can frequently lead to a permanently *lower* limitation. This is especially tricky, as we have generally spent our whole life getting used to things. Its all we have known, really, but that can change.

Then, keep stretching. Always. Never stop. Dont push it here either, ALL of these experiences are ALWAYS slower than we want. But, being patient might be the most important mindset we can have.

Its also important to listen to the docs (duh..), but if something really doesnt feel right.. listen to that instead.

Great news!
Just don't try to do too much.
"Enjoy" the downtime, you'll be back to the grind soon enough.
