I put together this web page to give you meaningful information about my FAI recovery.I felt like I could not find any resources or blogs that truly explained what FAI recovery might be like. I am an anxious person, so every setback I had was communicated in my weekly thoughts below.Also, my MRI doctor in February 2013 told me they were there when an imaging scan had some trouble with pictures in that area.During the first week or so, I felt burning pain in the center to the right center of my thigh near the right hip.
I still think it is a poor substitute for running but I've grown to like it more than I thought I could.
Nevertheless, all the physical therapists I saw said, 'let pain be your guide.' If I was not so afraid of hurting my hip, I believe I could have recovered more quickly. I hope your own journey through FAI recovery goes quicker and less stressfully than my own. My overnight stay in the Bucks County Specialty hospital was a pleasurable experience. I felt quite good on the Endromorphine they treated me with on-site. When you get in the car for the ride home from the hospital, that's when your recovery condition really hits you.
Nevertheless, when I came home and went on weaker medicines, the real pain started!
Good luck on the surgery, and do the work you need to do in PT afterwards.
I still manage to be active and am doing my first triathlon in April, but like the author of the site, it's a balancing act for me and there are aches and pains in my body now that I have learned to adjust to, and I have to stay active/do PT regularly or symptoms flare up.
