Right now the date seems to be far in the future. My hip is going downhill pretty quick. I can still walk unassisted but on some days it's easier to use a cane. It just doesn't feel right using a cane in public, not sure why but I just don't like to do it.
I'm thinking the steroid injection is speeding up cartilage loss. Exercise causes more pain than it used to.
The CT for robotic mapping has been done, I still have a few appointments left prior to surgery. One is with a blood doctor, my counts were a little off so I get to have a bone marrow aspiration. Lucky me, lol.
It's been a long 4 weeks since the bone marrow biopsy. It's been an anxious time waiting for the results.
Saw the Hematologist today and reviewed the pathologists report. My chromosomes, morphology, etc are all good.
This means I'm still on for hip replacement and can get my mind back into preparing for surgery. I'm also down to 1 appointment and it's the pre-surgical 2 weeks prior to surgery.
