I am excited about starting some medications to help me get through the day. Besides the post-op pain meds, I haven't been taking anything but OTC Aleve (which basically did nothing for my pain). Now I have prescription strength anti-inflammatories to take for three months, as well, I should be getting an anesthetic/calcium-channel blocker cream for my hip to help ease things up. I truly appreciate that my surgeon is doing something for my pain as it has been barely tolerable to function each day.

I've had many ups and downs, and seem to be stuck in a rut at the moment. I do owe an entire post (or two) to update on my follow-up appointment from two days ago, but I am still trying to process all of the information I was given. As well, I am dealing with emotions that run extremely deep right now. I will say that another surgery could very well be in the future for me as things are not progressing as they should. I am gutted. I promise to expand on it later, but I am not ready at the moment as I wasn't mentally ready for this lack of conclusion. I was expecting my appointment to be closure, and yet it still remains a mystery as to why and what my hips are doing.
