You are all so wonderful with the comments, voicemails and emails. I’m definitely still in the research phases and hope to have some answers and a definitive plan in the next few days. Essentially, I’m waiting to hear the opinions of a couple of doctors that surgery is, in fact, the best decision in my case…or not. In the meantime, my emotions fluctuate on a minute-to-minute basis as you can imagine, but I know I’ll approach this with the same irreverent and raunchy sense of humor that I bring to every poopy situation. Right now, I feel like a crack addict who knows they are about to go to rehab any day no. I’m doing as much as my body and bum hip will allow (which isn’t a whole lot). Swimming, some cycling, core, strength and very minimal running…20-30 minutes at a time.
I’m going to go ahead and request vegan bon bons and a subscription to People Magazine when I’m laid up for a few weeks 🙂
As always, it could always be worse. My heart could be ripped to shreds. Thank goodness it’s only my hip!
