One Year Out!

Has it only been one year since my RPAO? It feels like an eternity! That was one long year with all the rehabbing and getting back on my feet, but it also seems so long ago since I've been in pain--thank GOD! The weekend before my surgery last July I went out and enjoyed an evening of dinner & the casino with friends. By the end of the night I could hardly walk, even the really old people with their walkers and oxygen tanks at the casino were passing me as I tried to walk. I'm not making that up, it's all true and it reconfirmed how badly I needed my hip fixed.

Fast forward a year. Last night I headed out once again to take in the casino & the Kid Rock show. My hip didn't even cross my mind, and it didn't dawn on me until today that my 1 year hip anniversary is here. What a difference a year makes. I am so thankful to have found my awesome surgeon, and so glad that my hip was salvageable! What an experience this has all been, and I'm so lucky that things have worked out as well as they have.
