Hip Progress

on December 26, 2016

A super quick update as I don’t think I’ve done a proper one on my hip for a while. I’ve now got an appointment for seeing the specialist. It’s not until mid-January but it’s a huge relief. It’s taken six months after I got referred to be get an appointment and this isn’t the end of the line. I’m likely to need to be referred for a scan or further tests before a treatment plan can be put in place.

It’s been slowly getting better and I have a bigger range of pain free movement that I did but it’s been so slow.

I’ve been super bored of doing my physio exercises and not doing anything to high impact. I’ve also put on a bit of weight. I’m about 15lb heavier than I was in January and that’s with post Christmas gains. I’m looking forward to being able to do things again, even simple things like going for a short run or cycling across town or being able to do a yoga class without having to skip poses because of my hip. I’d like to not have to plan if I’m going to drink wine or if I need to skip it to be able to take painkillers later. I’d like to be able to go to an acrobatics class at all and not be worried about how I’m going not be comfortable walking up stairs the next day. In general I want to be fit and healthy. It shouldn’t be a huge ask but at the moment it feels like one.
