"I Returned to Work Full Time With No Issues"
I couldn't walk without pain, and it even affected my work as a residential painting contractor. I couldn't climb ladders, take off receptacle plates close to the floor, or remove baseboard. My golf game became erratic because I couldn't rotate my body to swing the club, and driving became painful, so I couldn't take long trips.
My turning point came when joint replacement surgery was recommended by my surgeon after he said injections and therapy would no longer be effective.
Once I finished my rehab, my joint replacement has allowed me to return to work full time with no issues. I am able to play golf again and driving is no longer a problem.
Make sure to finish your rehab and push yourself with each higher limit because the pain will ease as you do more. Also, take your surgeon's advice about the time to replace rather than treat the pain.
