Anyways, my incisions are still a little gnarly so I wont show you, but the nurse said that they looked great. This time I have 3 incisions and two of the three are gnarlier than the other one. As you can see the top of my thigh is still pretty swollen so I have been icing my thigh. You can still see the tape stuck to my thigh too. You can kinda see the scars from my last surgery. One is in between the two horizontal band aids and the other is directly to the right.
I have been feeling really great. I have energy and have been able to work from home. I can even put a little weight on my right leg already, not too much though.
Painwise, I am really comfortable as long as I take my pain meds and ice my hip. If I don't wake up in the middle of the night to take my pain meds I wake up in the morning with a lot of pain, but it is not excruciating. My hip has hurt worse when I walked around NYC a couple summers ago. The pain feels like there is a huge fresh bruise inside my hip joint. The incisions also hurt a little. Nothing I can't handle. I'm a tough one.

Also, my dad and brother are coming to visit me next week. I'm so excited to see my fam. I'm going to try and get them some awesome Christmas presents too.
