I feel great.
I just want to say that.
My hip rarely bothers me, and when it does, it's about one-tenth of what it used to feel like.
Like I said before, makes it hard to have a bad day.
In response to Laura's question about the metal - I can definitely feel that my leg is getting stronger without it - much stronger than it was all last year. And I'm watching the flexibility come back in my yoga practice to a much greater degree. I can do all kinds of crazy nonsense on that side again like dragonfly and flying crow and eka pada yada yada. I don't know what it is anatomically, but I really feel that the metal got in the way of the muscles being able to strengthen and stretch properly.
I know after one surgery the last thing you want to do is go have surgery again, but FOs, it's worth it.
In other, sadder news, Metal Plate may be lost to the bowels of HSS.
Don't look at me like that. I tried. I really did. They're all weird and possessive over there.
Laura, it's on you now. Make sure you ask for it like a month before removal.
