Dear HW Friends,
I haven't been posting much as my pain levels have been all over the place, and my fatigue has hit hard. I've been waiting for almost 10 months now for an appointment with a hip surgeon to evaluate my right hip - an MRI showed a condition called Femoroacetabular Impingement (both CAM and Pincer), where the head of the femur doesn't sit in the hip socket properly.
I've been waiting to see this guy for so long, as there is a surgery that can help immensely, and would hopefully prevent me from ever needing a hip replacement.
Well, today I finally had a call from Dr. J's office offering me an appointment THIS THURSDAY afternoon!!!! I almost cried on the phone I was so excited!!!! I just hope and pray that when I see this doctor and after he's examined me and viewed new x-rays, etc., that he will consider me a viable candidate for surgery and that it will be booked and happen soon (but not before my CRUISE this coming March 26th!!!)
I am truly beside myself with happiness! It's been a long and very painful wait. My hope and prayer is that after the surgery is done and I am healed, there will be a lessening of pain in the pelvic area and that I will feel better physically in many ways. I know that I'll still be dealing with the other pain issues in my life, but even just to lower my pain a point or two would be fantastic.
Yay!!!! I am the happiest girl in the Forums today!!!!
