1 Week Post Op (and days 4-6 too)

Post Op Day 4

I did not do much besides hang out in the CPM machine. Although I think this was the first day I was completely off painkillers!

Post Op Day 5

After doing my 6 hours of CPMing I went to my friend's graduation party! Ok so dresses and hip brace do not look great together but as long as the dress is a bit shorter than knee length it is do able. I spent a good amount of time sitting with my feet in a pool as my friends swam but my lower back/hip started to hurt so I decided I might be better off in a chair with a back. I slept over after the party, I actually slept pretty well on a couch it probably helped that it was around 3:30 am by the time I went to sleep.

Post Op Day 6

I left my friend's house around 11:00, as most of my friends were getting back in the pool and I still needed to do 6 hours of CPMing. My big accomplishment of the day was biking on the stationary bike for 20 minutes.


1 Week Post Op!

I survived the first week a lot better this time around, mostly because I did not have a spinal headache. I have also decided the item I hate using the most, the brace is worst than crutches or the CPM.
