This year when I was climbing the ladder stands my pain got really bad. I knew I couldn’t use a climber because raising it up uses my hips so I only used ladder stands. This also happened to be the time that the injection was wearing of and more things started irritating it. I couldn’t drive to work half way before it was uncomfortable again. Thankfully I had heated seats in my truck.
So my husband and I decided to go ahead and have me do the surgery. I knew it would be a hard journey but never knew how hard it would be.
I still continued to hunt, as that is meat in our freezer. I endured the pain everyday, although it would have hurt even if I didn’t hunt.
After I shot my buck I decided to wait until after surgery to continue to hunt. My surgery was set for a week before Thanksgiving so I thought I would have plenty of time afterwards. Boy was I wrong!
