stairs yes or no

My doctor suggested that I point my toes out, like a duck, when walking up stairs. This helps relieve the pressure to those ligaments. It worked for me, but I still didn't fully embrace stairs until around week four. Driving, lifting, moving, even sitting up, didn't compare to those stairs!!

stairs yes or no

I am two weeks post op and have been able to do stairs albeit slowly! I try to limit it to two - three times a day. I am finding, however, that the more I do (even if it is normal MD approved activity like walking around the house or taking short rides in the car as a passenger) I get a serious case of swelly belly. How ironic is it that I can now never get pregnant but I look as though I am! Best of luck to you in your recovery. Take it slow and follow doctors orders! We will all get through this together!
