I am having a terrifically Bizarro week!!!!
First crazy thing that has happened is that my friend who was to take me and help me after surgery ended up in the hospital having her Gall Bladder removed. She is doing great now and feeling much better, but I think we are going to use her adult daughter to help me out.
So I’ve spent a lot of time at the hospital. It has not been too bad, lots of chatty time with her and I got to learn to play some fun games on the ipad. Look up Amateur Surgeon…if you have an ipad or phone. FUN FUN.
I also got to get to know her daughter more, and she is as much fun as her Mom, so I have a new friend.
On top of that, on Monday I suddenly woke up with ABSOLOUTELY no pain in my hip. It was like a Miracle. I could flex, I could rotate, I walked without a funny limp. It felt like there was a field of space in my hip. I’m not really sure why this amazing event occurred. It of course freaked me out entirely and was difficult to read, as I had slept on my air mattress the night before and had a Lumbar spine ache…
I had taken almost 4 days off from running swimming and doing any gym exercises. Just too busy with work, helping my friend, and seeing Pre-op people.
So I started to run again last night and did two small work outs today. Indeed, some sort of hip pain is back.
But I keep wondering why and where is it coming from … I fell asleep on the air bed (set up in front of the TV for my recovery days.) again and woke up with a really crickety back…
Hip felt…OK. Not 100% like on Monday. I ran 2 miles this morning, and then worked a little, then helped my pal out of recovery…then I ran again a little bit.
It now hurts, but I am still not real sure how bad it hurts. I am back on the regular bed though.
And When I questioned cancelling the surgery….I was reminded that I have been limping for about 9 months.
Big other news. I had a bone scan today. And Indeed I do have osteopenia. Sad sad Panda.
