I am doing the required walking that the doctor wanted me to do. The pain sometimes does not bother me. My being able to sleep is a big problem. I called the doctor and he agrees six months time is needed to heal. He is pleased with my walking. That is good to hear.View Thread
I am new here. I am recovering from the surgery. I love to walk but find it very hard now. I am seeking some support as I get depressed about the slow recovery. I was a walker before and can you tell me how long the swelling and pain last? I am getting a lot of mixed opinions on this. Thank you.View Thread
