I’m going to need more wine.
The problem with not knowing what is wrong with my hip, is that no one knows how to treat it. We have tried a bunch of stuff with no pain relief. So now we are trying non-weight bearing. This is going to be a challenge.
I’m not sure how this will really work. I have two kids. I have school. I have a house that needs to be taken care of. Tim and the boys will have to step up…and I will have to let them.
We are also going to look into getting a second opinion. I’m not sure if I should go to the local Bone and Joint, or if I should go back to the clinic and see one of the hip docs. The problem I see with the hip doctors is that they will only look at the hip. They don’t really want to have anything to do with spinal issues. I am not convinced that the problem originates solely in the hip. It might be a lumbar issue.
Maybe there is some more imaging that needs to be done. A bone scan, maybe? Maybe another X-ray, but weight bearing this time to show a potential stress fracture?
I feel like we have tried everything. I guess I will just wait until Monday and see what type of referral makes the most sense. In the meantime, I’ll just be sitting around. Feel free to come visit…just bring a bottle of wine with you. And be prepared…I might put you to work.
