Today was a better day.
I managed to get in touch with the surgeons office to get my pain meds changed (downgraded for sure) starting tomorrow. Too bad I was too late to get them sent out today, but oh well. I've been taking near toxic doses of regular Tylenol in an attempt to kick the pain down.
My dear friend Marlene came out this afternoon for a lovely visit. She picked up a broom and swept my floors, bless her. With two cats and a dog, hair sweeping should be done daily which wasn't happening. I am truly appreciative of her help.
I watched some physio videos today and managed to figure out one of the exercises that was baffling me. I could NOT lift my operated leg at all. This video showed clearly how to do this exercise, which essential REMINDS the leg how to lift itself. Using a big tin can wrapped in a towel, and a belt, I pulled my leg up for two sets of ten repeats. I rested for two minutes then tried to get the leg to lift itself - and it worked! I can't lift much, maybe a couple of inches, but it's a lift in the right direction!!
The yoga is still being very helpful at night. It relaxes me and limbers up my stiff legs somewhat.
Hopefully sleep will soon be on the agenda!
