As a brain haemorrhage survivor with an awful gait, this is so precious thank you ❤
Never, ever give up Sharon!! ❤
I had to learn how to walk following my heart transplant. Now, my knees and hips give me some problematic times ….. but I keep pushing.
I won’t my friend and I too appreciate each day and those little blessings.
Wow, I too have hip pain, it’s searing and awful! Due to mechanical wear from my wonky walk. I get injections annually (on list due to covid) into each one plus around my sacral area. Have you had any help? Naproxen can take the edge off. But yes!! Keep pushing ❤🙏🏻⚔
With all the medications I take due to my heart transplant, I’m very cautious about taking any pain relievers. I’ve been doing physical therapy and also cutting back a bit on activity. I averaged 15,000+ steps / day in 2020.
