Has it been 2.5 months, or 2.5 decades??

Hi all,

It’s been 2.5 months (almost 10 weeks) post surgery.  I have only been walking on two shoes for about 10 days.  Yet, even though it’s only been 2.5 months, it feels much longer.  This past week I tried going to a yoga class.  It was in 105 degree heat, and I couldn’t do half the poses because of the leg.  Add that to the fact that I’m extremely out of shape from lying on my back for the last two months, and I almost passed out several times during the class. It was clear I’m out of shape.

While I maybe walking again, I certainly cannot run and have lost some "zest."  How has everyone gotten back into shape (and even back into life for that matter) after this injury?

  1. Bicycling’s been my fave exercise, though it was brutal when I first got back onto the bike. I started in the boot, then continued in 2 shoes.

  3. Heya Savvy, I am almost 8 weeks post op and feel your pain…..I feel sooo out of shape, add in a little body dismorphic syndrome and I feel like a stuffed pig!

    Having gone through this before, I can say it just takes time. Alot of time!

    After my first time around I would say while a little stiff, I became better than ever. It will come, just go SLOWLY! You dont want to re-injure anything….Like Norm said, bicycling is good. Or while the weather is still nice walking would be good too, just to get moving outside. Everyday I feel a little better……I was smiling yesterday because I can now walk up stairs sort of like a normal person :-)

    Im losing my mind over here….I have already started new playlists future workouts…….gonna hit some weights for now…. Happy healing…
