Just a quick thought to start the weekend! So many patients lose their hope in those first weeks after injury and/or surgery. After all, you are limited in most every way. Focus on healing. Know your body is doing work that you can't see. It is working and doing things to prepare you for that time when you can become more active in your recovery! Patience is a virtue, as I'm sure you have heard before. Try to embrace that idea (even though it's hard). It is my area of weakness and I'm owning it! I have worked on this and it still stumbles me.
Upcoming stories will include actual research to give you hope as well as a patient story or two that can help you find your own recipe for hope and success.
