I was so close to being all healed up from my hip injury a couple of months ago. I was feeling almost a 100% when of course I was pushed too far in the amount of carrying time I did. I am now complete off my feet for at least six days when I finish my steroid treatments. I can't tell you how horrible the pain was yesterday when I went into physical therapy. It was bad enough that my awesome therapist got me a doctor's appoitment immediately. Once again I am off work and unable to do anything. I won't know for sure the damage done until the inflammation in the tendon decreases. Best case is that I just aggrivated the injury and worst case is that some of the tendon is now detached from the bone. The doctor doesn't think I have a complete detachment because I can still lift my leg up but I have intense pain with it.
So I am home all day bored to death. I am not use to not doing anything. I am accustomed to being on my feet 6 to 8 hours a day most of it walking. Thank goodness for my Wii. I didn't realize all the games that I can play to work my upper body that I don't have to engage my legs. I am bummed because according to the doctor's scale I have lost 4 pounds in about 10 days. So I have my meal plans printed out and am making a huge effort to follow them as close as possible. Hopefully with what limited things I can do and keeping my calories in check I can keep the weight from coming back this time.
