Hi Lola, Thanks for the update. I am still anxious to hear what your Dr. has to say about the uneven leg length. What do you think is causing all the pain? The fact that your leg is uneven or maybe your muscle tone is not as good as the right also the surgeries so close together. This could all play a part in your pain. I am glad to hear your progress at 2 months I am doing the same working part-time and all my own cleaning etc. I must make 20 trips a day up and down the stairs. One comment you made about the precautions my Dr. took me off of all of mine. He said I can doing anything as long as there is no pain , also no contact sports and no ice in the Winter months. Are you still watching your same precautions as you were immediately after surgery? Getting in and out of car,bending ets...??He even said I can cross my legs which I did in his office the day of my 6 week check up. I still am careful not to bend over to far,but I do put on my shoes and tie them from a sitting position. I pick up things off the floor,slowly of course. Thanks for the tip of keeping my progress in check I do get tired early evening and usually in bed by 10pm. I sleep stictly on my back, not sure how to roll over and the pillow between legs is uncomfortable. What do you ? Well, I hope this finds you in better spirits and making progress. I will think of you and keep you in my prayers as I do all the Hippies..Take care,,,Kathy
