Above is the CPM machine that passively moves my hip joint at 45° currently. I have to do this for 6 hours per day, increase 5° per day up to 90° goal. Can we say boring? Seriously, having hip surgery sucks for the PT required. I had my first rehab appointment Monday, and besides it hurting every thing she did, with all the exercises to be done at home, I will be doing these for like 10 hours a day. Wahhhh! I am tired and cranky and just want to sleep!!!
Having company like Lola makes it a little easier though…see below.
This is my claustrophobia generating contraption (below). It sucks and I really do hate it. Makes me anxious. I usually opt for sleeping with pillows between my legs or my right leg in the CPM machine.
That’s my life these days…
