I really did not need to break my hip even if I was working Uber Eats or not but I guess I will look for something that I can do while staying at home? But, it will save on gas staying at home and not driving my car.

How'd you do that?
Gotta work on that dismount, eh?

Nothing like a personal tragedy to show up everyone's true colors.

I know the pain.

I have an artificial hip, it’s also an above the knee amputation (IED blast)

You have s long recovery. My best advice to you is to not sit still. Move around as much as you can for no reason, readjust your position in the chair/bed ect.

Also don’t be afraid of looking like an old man and use the walker. It’s not worth risking a fall and hurting yourself again. Your also much better doing 1000 steps with s walker then 100 without it.

I still use my walker, well mostly because I like to give my stump s break to breathe. It really helps.

also once you get to PT do more than the minimum, huge help.
