This was the first time standing after the second hip. It wasn't nearly as painful as the first one. There was way less pain in the groin area and moving the leg side to side was so much more painful last time. When you straighten the leg the first time, the stiffness in the hammy is probably the most notable. There is really no pain deep down in the joint. You would think that after all that carving, grinding, and hammering on bone, that there would be some bone pain, but there really isn't. Also on this event, the catheter removal was much easier and less painful, the gut issues were way better, everything seemed easier.
