In one of my previous posts I talked about how my hip has been hurting me. Well, today I went to the doctor and found out what is going on.
Good news: I don't need surgery. I might need surgery eventually, but not now.
Bad news: I've torn part of the muscle in my hip. :( Dear Lord it hurts SO bad today. The doctor poked and prodded and pushed and manuevered my hip around and I can definitely feel it.
So, no running for me for a little bit. It is actually quite upsetting and kind of depressing. I use running to help with my depression, plus it's something I LOVE to do and I'm good at. Now I can't do it for a while.
My doctor has put me on steroids (Prednizone Pack) for 6 days (oh boy!) to help with the healing process. I would like to think that after the 6th day I'll be able to run again, but I've never been on steroids, I don't know how they work, I don't know how fast I'm going to heal.
In the meantime, it hurts to sit, stand, lie down, everything. Ugh.
