Hip rehab - 5 months post-op

The biggest problem I'm facing at the moment is that my whole body seems to be out of alignment. This morning I visited the physio and he fixed a lot of it, but now after dinner I'm feeling a little bruised.

He explained that it's because I've been walking around without a lig teres since 2009, and unstable for the last year or 2 since the surrounding ligaments stretched, so my body compensated for that. Now my hip is stable again, my body is readjusting again. Everywhere, it seems!

He tested all my reflexes and it seems I now have the perfect hip, yay! And apparently my recovery at 5 months is where the last person was at 7 months, so that's quite impressive when you consider she's 15 years younger than I am.

The task for the next week is to get 2 hours of exercise bike in. This will loosen up the knee joint and some of the scar tissue that's formed, and then he's going to stretch out my knee and hopefully make it less uncomfortable.

Then he says "You need to make an appointment with John, to get an all-clear to start jogging". WTF?! He says "I'm going to get you jogging or die trying". I said "You may well die laughing!".
