Remember last week how I posted that I was super bummed because I had developed some weird hip pain? Well, after nearly two weeks of ongoing pain with absolutely zero running/any working out at all...I was still in pain. A lot of pain. And I was not happy.
So on my day off of work last week, I called up the orthopedic, booked myself an appointment, and went to see the doc. Several hours later, after meeting with the doc several times, PT, having an X-ray, an MRI, and maybe a few other crappy things, I was given a diagnosis.
A stress fracture. In my hip. Then yesterday I got a call with the final results of my MRI.
A stress fracture. AND a torn ligament. All in my hip.
AKA-a lot of pain.
Also AKA: non-weight bearing for several weeks. Then partial weight bearing for several weeks. AKA crutches for at least 6 weeks. And no running for at least 8-10.
Cue me being not happy. Not happy at all.
I'm supposed to run a halfsie marathon this weekend. I was so pumped. Now I can barely limp around. I may have had a major meltdown or two over the past week. I am not not not happy.
So if I'm a little absent around here in the coming few weeks. Pardon me. Its difficult to talk about working out/staying fit if I'm not working out or staying fit. Instead, I'm hobbling on crutches and doing a whole lotta sitting. A whole lot.
