Another month under the belt and slowly the whole hip story becomes a faint memory. Thank goodness.
I am doing really good and I have finally reached my goal of 20 minutes on the Elliptical, TM (walking) and the stationary bike, all level 1. Big yay.
I tried 18 minutes level 1 & adding 2 minutes “level 2” on the Elliptical. My hip did not approve of it and is pissed ever since, BIG time. What’s another flare in my never ending hip career?
So at the moment I am laying low till this has passed but it’s just a matter of time. I always bounce back.
I also would love to get rid of the deep butt ache that I have every day… my loyal companion. In two weeks I am seeing my OS again, I guess I’ll ask him.
I am back at PT for my frozen shoulder (see http://www.frozen-shoulder.blog) and asked my PT about my butt ache. He said it can have several causes, it would not hurt to investigate a bit further, just to be sure and yes, it most definitely also can come from the hip.
That better not be the case.
Spring is around the corner and I am itching to go in my backyard. Last year there was NO outdoors anything for me, since I was January, February, March, April and May on crutches. No winter and no spring for me but 2019 is looking already brighter.
I’d also really love to ride a bike outdoors this summer. I settle for “once through the park”. Last time was three hip surgeries and two stress fractures in my pelvis ago, in the summer of 2013. Before hips took over.
Seems like another lifetime to me.
