Surgery was a success. PT was too slow, went to a wellness spa for a month. Worked w/trainers, exercise, stretching, treadmill in the pool, sometimes 3hrs a day in the pool. The doctor released me when I retd. Was doing great, but took a fall 6 mos later. Have trouble walking and lifting, but am working on it. My life has been such that I haven't been able to devote the time needed to get back to before the fall, but I am working on it. Good dAys, bad days.
