Not So Hipster

January 21, 2015


Did I mention this? This hip thing?

This is me this morning at Kaiser, waiting to be called in to have my aching hip x-rayed. I’m not expecting an x-ray will turn up anything, and if it does it’s not something I want (arthritis). I’m hoping the next step in this diagnostic process is an MRI to see what part of my muscle (iliopsoas, quad, adductor, all of the above) I abused and how badly. But I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself here.. first things first.

Meanwhile, not walking too well and wincing a lot. It’s like injuring your thumb; you never realize how much you use it ’til it’s effed up.

      I always said, if I ever needed a joint replacement, I’d get it right away w/o hesitation. I’m not sure that’s what’s going on but I come from a long line of joint-challenged people. To me, it feels more like a trauma… but maybe it’s a trauma on top of a weak joint? We shall see. Thanks for the encouragement.
