Six week update

dmtonotobasin14Wow. It’s amazing to consider that this week is my six week milestone. I’m getting around really well and have less and less pain everyday. I’ve been biking, swimming, hiking, elliptical running and working out with weights. Plus stretching and Yoga plus doing lots of pushups and situps so feeling stronger and healthier every day. This is a lot of hard work but it’s paying off with a huge reduction in pain.

To be honest, I’m not completely out of pain, but it’s a relief to have less every day. I am optimistic that I have a great future ahead and the ability to do the things I love and value. Feeling so grateful I decided to  journey down the Stem-Cell implant path. I swear those little guys are growing and healing my hips.

Steady Progress

20170210_1602521Four weeks today. I’m excited to be making steady progress. The doctor said I’m doing outstanding for this early in the recovery. He said to expect continued improvement for up to 18 months and that they don’t generally see much progress for 3 to 8 months after implant so this is all really good news.

I’ve been swimming, biking and doing Yoga most every day with little to no pain at all. I’m still experiencing some pain at night but have been able to manage this pretty well without any pain medication just by using massage and sleeping on my back with pillows supporting me. 20170211_1355581

Looking forward to continued progress and a life without pain soon.
