After a month of walking

Because I’m not allowed to swim I’ve been trying to walk more in an attempt to get fitter and stronger before my operation. It hasn’t been easy but when I’m walking it usually feels fairly good, much better than when I first started walking anyway. I can now walk 45mins a few times a week, my ankle is pretty much all fixed (finally) and I can feel muscles growing in my legs! Unfortunately my hip is feeling worse, especially the bursitis and side of my hip. I’ve been icing after my walks but some nights it feels like I’ve been stabbed! If surgery wasn’t so close, I don’t think I’d push through this but I’m on the home stretch now. My physiotherapist has advised me to keep walking until one week before surgery and then rest up.
