remember to ice
my 'partner' the physical therapist has worked many years in orthopedics, industrial injury, surgical part of the hospital, etc. When I had hernia repair, she made me ice the surgical site twice a day for 20 minutes. Amazing how the soreness & swelling went away! Even 3 months later when, post-exercise, my groin would ache, she'd have me sitting in a chair with an icepack on it for 20 minutes. Worked every time.
They're beautiful handsome machines that translate energy into joy.
