However, last Friday I fell/dropped down a stair, least I was in a shop walking and there was a stair dropping down into the changing room that bizarrely wasn't marked and instead it was actually carpeted over. So walking, I just happened to step into it and unexpectedly dropped 3 or 4 inches and ouch! It kinda shunted my hip upwards and immediately hurt the illiac crest area.. since then I have had much more trouble sleeping, feel dull ache in joint when I put weight on it and some spasm around the hip also. Really cross what a stupid thing to happen and I am sooo careful too! However that was 5 days ago and I'm hoping my 8 months post op joint can withstand that jolt and heel in the coming days or week.
On a positive note, as of today, I have started one to one pilates using a trapeze and reformer table to hold the weight of my leg and allow the pilates person to add resistance as I become able, so tailoring to my hippy needs.
Also I have an appointment with my surgeon. He knows I am disappointed with my recovery so far and I am curious what this next appointment will bring.
Happy healing out there!
