Erica,

So sorry you're still searching for that long term solution. It shouldn't be this hard! I'm glad they're at least willing to try these other possibilities, but wish someone could pinpoint it and say "see here - this is the problem and we can fix it in a jiff" !

I'll keep my fingers, eyes, toes and legs crossed for you - just can't quite master crossing the arms very well at the moment!

Sara

Oh, wow, Erica. I’m sure you are frustrated and disappointed. At least he didn’t completely dismiss you. That’s a good thing and now you have a plan. I, too, was already doing hip flexor stretches in a routine put together by a kinesiologist before I was asked to do the same thing for a little while longer then try the injection then surgery. It’s the formula most do to lessen your risks as opposed to jumping right to surgery (and that may not be the best or right solution) but also to be able to qualify you for insurance for each next more invasive step. That said, it doesn’t make the wait any less disheartening. I know I felt “I’ve already done that, is another 2 weeks going to change anything?” However, you will have done it and then can move to the next step to get you closer to healing. Don’t lose hope. Persistence is the name of the game here. We’re here for you. Keep us posted. ❤

Anytime. The ortho world seems to move so slowly unless there’s an emergency. It’s painful in more ways than one. Lol. I’m here if you need me. ❤ Pat.

Sorry. I am still trying to recover and still having some issues. I am currently waiting for an injection and then will be getting a band release and the wires taken out. The hip its self seems to be doing great though. The opposite hip is now the worst. Lordy

I’m sorry this continues and now your other hip is bothering you...ugh! Somethings gotta give here. I wish I could do more than wish you comfort, Erica. I hope this is resolved soon. Stay in touch, we’re here for you. :console2:

Sorry it's been so long... I haven't had any new news for you all. I have an appt with my ortho Monday. We will be discussing my RTHR (Left hip) and the continuing pain due to the ilio band and the wires that are holding my bones together. He is considering taking the wires out and also releasing the band. He feels that my left side will feel great after that. Woot Woot! Finally. Now on to the Right hip. This poor hip has been a real trooper for the last +/-3 years while I have been struggling with my Left hip. Now.... It has done its job and now hurts tremendously. So needless to say, we will also be discussing the Right hip at my appt. Ill get back on to let you know how it went. Thanks again, everyone for the love and support.

Erica :)

Hey, there! Nice to hear from you but sorry you’re still struggling, Erica. That’s been a lot to sort through and get taken care of but I’m glad you have some answers. It sometimes seems like “the song that never ends” doesn’t it? You sound hopeful which is a very good way to deal with this. I’m hoping for a good appointment on Monday, my hipster friend. Looking forward to your update. ❤ Pat.

Hello Erica,
Its been such a long haul with your left hip. Hopefully this is the beginning of the end and you’ll soon be on your way to perfect healing. Wondering if your OS is planning to do the release you mentioned? The procedures have been added to your signature. If inaccurate, please let us know and we’ll edit. Thankfully you don’t have much longer to wait. Please stay in touch and let us know how you’re doing. Will be thinking of you and wishing you all the best!
