I got back into my pants between week 2 and 3. I'm at 4 week now. I'm flat in the morning and swell slightly by evening. The pants thing was also vastly helped by changing from that velcro binder into a Spanx garment. What a difference! I think you'll see big changes during this week. I'm a long-time runner, too. It's just about killing me not to go pound the pavement. At 4 weeks I'm thrilled with my result. I'm counting down the days until my exercise restrictions are over.

Do you still have a lot of swelling? Two weeks is pretty early so I'd bet swelling and/or fluid retention is the culprit.

Best of luck with your recovery and please keep us posted on your results!
