Think a PAO is a big deal to recover from? Here's some inspiration from a guy that's got it a lot worse. Quite amazing. Go Blue!

Happy 2nd Anniversary!

Wow, two years have now passed since under going RPAO surgery. Here's how I spent my day--teaching a water class, working, then taking the kid to the park to play some ball with him. Pretty cool that it was all done pain-free. Don't get me wrong, it aches on occasion but that usually only lasts a few minutes and I still do get some muscle spams but nothing that keeps me idle for long. I can do lunges/squats and ride a bike all day long, but please don't make me jog or jump! I've learned to modify as needed, it's just good not to be a slave to my hips. I can still feel in my heart where the fear of surgery once was, and what a relief to have that all behind me now. For those of you preparing for this surgery, you'll find you're stronger than you ever thought possible and you'll be so relieved to be on the other side. I must say, "Thank you Dr.Z for giving me my life back!!!"
