Hip rehab - Happy 6 month anniversary to me

Today I reached the 6 month anniversary since my ligamentum teres reconstruction.

Unfortunately I came down with a virus almost 3 weeks ago which I can't seem to shake, which everybody else I know including my family either didn't even get, or managed to get over in a few days. A week of antibiotics did nothing. A nurse friend suggested that sometimes a general anaesthetic can affect your immune system - which would explain a lot because clearly mine is rubbish! As a result, I haven't done much physio in the last 3 weeks because the slightest amount of exertion results in a coughing fit. I've rescheduled my physio appointment to next week, which means I haven't been back since the last time I posted.

Apart from that - I'm a bit over myself, but my hip is feeling OK. I tried to do some Christmas shopping and things got a little achey by the end of the day, but I don't know if that's from walking around or from not doing any exercise bike. I've managed to get out to a few events and parties in the last month and not be too exhausted the next day. However, my feet are killing me - I've worn not-runners a few times in the last few weeks and my feet aren't happy about it.

The other BIG problem is, I've put on about 10kg in the last 6 months and I'm really unhappy about it. Which I could start trying to lose, if only I could just stop being sick and start exercising properly. Massive Catch-22.
