Long story short (or shorter) The Nurse Practitioner had jumped the gun, and had me in the loop with an Orthopedic Dr. (surgeon, one I didn't even pick) NP without a doubt said I needed this procedure~
So for the past 2 and a half weeks....
I've been telling people, like you all. Family and Friends that I was having the double hip thing.
I was preparing myself, looking into which surgeon was the best. Whether I should go to Seattle, or stay here. My son was upset. My husband elicited help from some of the nurses he knows....
Of course I'm relieved, but also when you've prepared yourself for what someone has told you was going to happen and then .... no it's not going to happen.... I guess I felt blown away today hence the long post.
What I has is a serious case of Bursitis.... So it's icing, less walking or exercising. Heavy anti-inflammatory and walk with a cane if needed... then we'll see if it's been in a couple of weeks. If not then cortisone shots.
NO HIP REPLACEMENTS AT THIS TIME!!!!!!!
Raise a glass of wine or Champagne and say with me "Hip hip horary" (no pun intended : )
