Hip Update #1
This morning I went to the doctor again. We started off with a few strength tests. Or maybe I should call them "lack of strength" tests. I laid flat on my back and was told to lift my leg. Um, yeah, I can't. Then he moved my leg inward and outward which caused quite a bit of pain. Next, it was time for x-rays. Two x-rays were done - one where my legs were straight out with my toes turned in (ouch) and one with my leg bent and knee rested outward. I love my doctor's office. Everything is digital and the doc went over the x-rays as soon as they were done. Surprisingly, there was nothing. No stress fractures, no fractures, no impingement, no arthritis. Nothing. So next up I will be having some fancy MRI with contrast dye injected into my hip to rule out a labral tear.. It's not scheduled yet, but hopefully it will be done in the next week. For now, there is no running. Shoot, I'm barely walking. But, I might get in the pool and pull. I have to do something. I'll go insane!!
