Hip Update

Today marks 1 week of complete rest for me...well, almost complete - I am doing some arms and core work.  I am not very good at doing nothing, so working out the upper body makes me feel like I am doing something.

Yesterday I went in for a MRI and x-rays.  Let's just say that was an interesting experience...me, in a trendy hospital gown, laying in a huge tube, with earplugs, for 30 minutes.  I thought, "Oh goody, I can take a little power nap!".  That might have been possible if not for the crazy noises this thing makes! 


I'm thinking this kind of tube would have been more fun...


Dr Chiro has only done a preliminary look at my scans, but so far he has only noticed "some inflammation within the capsular region of the hip and an ill-defined labrum."  Yeah, whatever the hell that means.  He is waiting on the report from the radiologist and will take a more thorough look at everything today.


Keep your fingers crossed that the scans give us some answers.  I'd be happy if we could just figure out what's going on with my hip and come up with a plan to fix whatever is!  Right now, it's a big guessing game of  it could be this, so let's try this...or, it could be that, let's try that...ugh!

I'll say a prayer that everything turns out okay! You'll be running before you know it. www.dashingdiva.net

I really hope they figure it out, so you can get some relief. My hip pain was front to side. But for me it was strange... I could squat 150+ lbs, but couldn't walk up/down stairs, run or even walk without pain -- that makes no sense, right? The worst pain came after sitting for a while, and then getting up to walk around. Ouch!!!

Praying for you, Christy! Focus on what you can do. That will be your new found strength when you get to use all that great new gear you have!
