Says ortho doc: "This hip joint should be almost impossible to dislocate....You would have to yank the whole thing apart to do it"
Says me after almost dislocating it.: Ouch.
yes, I had to put it to the test. And it passed the test but the fact that it partially dislocated put the fear of God into me. I cannot be blithe. I must follow hip precautions and be DILIGENT not to bend in the manner that I have bent these past seven times that resulted in so much pain and expense
So that messes up tomorrow's workout that's for sure....and it may be even longer that I am sidelined....I have to ask Herr Doktor. But the good news is that I worked out today. And yesterday. And many days before that.
The bad news is that the rheumy put me on prednisone 5-10 mg a day. I've been only taking 5 mg. It has not significantly affected my pain....but it HAS created hunger. I pigged out all night long last night. And counted the minutes til mealtimes today. NOT GOOD. I weighed myself. and the two pounds that I THOUGHT I'd gained from eating soup the other day??? WEll I really did gain it. Now that is.
So I've weighed my options. Pain? Or FAT?? And I choose pain. AT least I THINK I do. I am going to let the rheumy know that his solution isn't working for me and will see what other tricks he has up his sleeve. Until then I"m gonna apply myself to re-losing these pounds just as soon as I stop being hungry and bedridden :(
