@jk Having been active all my live, the past 14 months of a sedentary lifestyle + unrelenting pain have been really hard on me. I know I'm de-condtioned to the point that I'll probably start my rehab doing very little, and walking short distances, building up by baby steps. I long to ski (surgeon says OK), play tennis (also OK) and go for *long* walks with my dh. I'm so sorry you're dealing with a femur fracture – did I miss that part of your story? What in the world happened?!
