Yuppers, 2 months since my last surgery. Weeehhaaa. Incredible that it was that long ago because it feels just like yesterday. I have come so far since surgery and am happy that it has been a success. My joint is amazing! I have a lot of other stuff going on though. My lateral hip is still swollen for some odd reason. And my other side has some issues: psoas not working and hurts when he tries, bursitis, and a bit of decreased flexion motion. It will be interesting to see what Dr. P thinks and does about these issues.
I finally got my ultrasound dates: Dec. 7 for the abdomen and pelvis and Dec. 19 for both legs. I can't have any caffeine or fat the day before my tests. So I get to eat fruits, veggies, and clear liquids. I'm gonna be starving, not to mention going into withdrawals from no coffee. I am not looking forward to that bit, but I am looking forward to figuring out how big of a deal this next surgery is going to be. I see the surgeon on Dec. 28 and we will go from there. I am going to beg, beg, beg to get this done in time so that I can heal myself up real good before I return to school in the middle of February. Having all this going on, plus sucky hips, makes for an exciting end to 2012: a doctors appointment every single week until the end of the year (bar one week). Since I've had three surgeries in 2012, I figure I can deal with just one more. No biggie, right?!
