- not to bear weight prematurely (your doctor will tell you exactly when you can start bearing weight based on the x-ray);
- watch your diet (go for food that aid bone healing and avoid food that will make you put on weight due to a lack of non physical activity);
- keep yourself busy to avoid depression so you won't be tempted to overeat to cheer yourself up, find a good physiotherapist (your physiotherapist is your best friend post op)..... I know I did at KPJ Kuching; and
I'm now back in practice and I'm loving it. The quality of life is better here than in KL eventhough I'd probably make more money in KL.
If you have any queries or need clarification let me know. Not being able to walk like you usually do when you were born normal can be frightening and discouraging but I'm here to tell you that YOU WILL WALK and you will do so without any walking aid whatsoever. However, you must be persistent and believe in God and yourself.
