Just a quick update: I did discontinue rehab, ordered by the surgeon. Once I experienced pain in both of my hips (one replaced 8 years ago) and my ankle (injured and broken 2 years ago) the surgeon stopped my Physical Therapie. On my own will, I returned this week, but to a different Rehabilitation business. They were open to what I wanted to achieve and treated me gently, the first day. I was told not to exercise too much the following day. To my surprise, I stayed awake all that night with some terrific pain. I returned to rehab, yesterday, explaining what I experienced. They were as baffled as I was. More therapy, yesterday, but nothing too hard. Last night I must have had the best night's sleep, since this ordeal started. I was so grateful. Continued to do my walking, and bicycle move in the hot tub, today. I am looking forward to another good night's sleep. I have to be hopeful, as I have planned a trip to Europe in about 3 weeks. We will see.
I stuck to my diet with a good breakfast, and a second meal, a sort of Lunch/Dinner combination, mid-afternoon. That has worked for me, and I stayed within 135# to 137#, weighing today 135#.
