Hi folks..the tests have come back and i have not got sciatica but a Labral hip tear and some chondroitis in the joint so pretty much the same deal that i had with my knee on the same leg,my back that i hurt just over a week ago is not healing as quickly as i would like either and between the two issues i have been in a bit of pain…the Dr has put me on Tramadol which i have not taken before as the ibuprofen is not good long term and was giving me awful gut pains..winner winner chicken dinner 🙂 she will be consulting with the radiologist regards a cortisone shot into the joint.
I recall complaining about my hip about five years ago and the Ortho i saw gave me an xray and said no problems which was the same when i complained of my knee and an xray said fine..only to have an MRI done a year later and require surgery as the kneecap was shredded and i had to have a lateral release to stop my knee slipping out..so i have been grinding my hip for 5 years . The symptoms were very sciatic like and so i gave it no more thought ..the Dr has queried all the falls i have had and i have told her my ankles are the problem.
When i had my first fall inside on the same steps of doom my ankle did not fully heal, i told the Dr i was seeing then and he said soft tissue damage it will be fine..since then i have had several more falls as my ankle is not stable..and of course the other ankle has been playing up as well.
So i will be asking for a check of them so i can either get strapping sorted for them or some physio.
My regular Dr is super but he has been away and this Dr seems quite ok so i am thankful for that!
A lot of Drs are only to happy to see Fibro on your chart and put every ailment down to that…well at least with the scans the proof is there..so i hope to get back up and running..well sauntering soon..i hate being unable to function normally..and with the fires around it is not good to be unable to move!
We sadly have had an early start to the fire season..a controlled burn that has apparently gotten away..yes they need to be done but they must not be left unattended especially prior to a dangerous heat wave..people have lost homes..my cousin i found out tonight ,has lost sheds..his home was saved and his horses and family safe..i messaged him to offer help and see if he is ok and he said he was and it was old hat for him..his Mum my Aunty lost everything including one dog during the Ash Wednesday fires..i can only imagine the memories yesterday bought back for him, and he was only young at the time too. Damn fire.We will be getting no rain.We have been warned this will not be a good season..
Hubby came home early yesterday as wind damage on houses was everywhere..so he has been busy with the SES..and he was going to go to the staging ground in Lancefield where the CFA (Country Fire Authority) had set up with other Emergency services but my back was that bad he did not want to leave me here for fear i would be in trouble if i needed to get out. And i would have struggled indeed. We had a couple of small fires in town but they were out quickly and believe me the winds were scary..and the temps high in the 38C range and the humidity dropped too..
So i am thankful my cousin is safe and that my hubby is safe..he worked from home today and is pooped as he was on a roof again today fixing damage from winds…not our roof but a call out with the SES.
So again i apologise for the here and there visits..when i am on the couch i cannot get blogger blogs on my phone..no idea why..and half the time i start to visit and comment and then because i am lying down i fall asleep..good grief..what a life 🙂
So i leave you all after this verbose post with some little shots i took the other day,i tried to go out and get motivated but i tired quickly and my back and hip started singing..but i did see these sweet garden friends..and have some thoughts to go with my images..
