Yep - I did it! I finally healed my pelvic stress fracture COMPLETELY!!! It's been a long, long road! I don't wish that on anyone!!

I already started my walk/run program. I happened to have an appt with my Personal Trainer this afternoon - so we ran!! We worked on my form - its been so long since I ran that I'm learning all over again - and that is actually a good thing! This time I'll learn the right way and stay healthy!! The run felt Great and so far so good everything feels good!! I'll run again on Saturday and then Monday! Yippee!!

I can't stop grinning!! :-)

Time Flies

I can't believe it's been 3 months since I posted! I guess I've been busy!! And part of me felt I shouldn't write a running blog if I couldn't run - that maychange soon!!

The good news is I may be running again soon! I walked a 5K yesterday in 47:38 without any ill effects!! I'm so excited! It was a homework assisgnment from my Personal Trainer. I was a little leary but now I'm thrilled!!

I see the Dr again June 21st and I should be given the OK to start a walk/run program! My trainer is a runner/ironman and is helping get strong and get my form right - so NO MORE INJURIES for me!!

That's all for now!

Hello Again

We just back from Hawaii - it was wonderful! And of course it was wild trying to get ready to be gone! I put in some really long hours at work - not the mention PT, etc. so - as I said Hello again!

I've not ben as consistant I possible with my exercises so it's hard to give an accurate assessment of where I am physically except to sat I think my shoulder is improving! I'm not sure how the hip is fairing - some better I hope! I'll be at the gym bright and early in the morning - so I'll let you know!

Off to watch the Oscars!

I had the bone density test - my bones are fine! Very good in fact! I haven't heard from the Dr but the Technician told me - she don't tell the Dr I told you but... you've got Great Bones!! Good News!!

Weak Bones

Yep - that's the best he could do!! So - on the Super Specialist rating scale - I'm giving him an Arthur (Arthur was The Tick's sidekick - he looked like a rabbit but was supposed to be a moth). Yes - I know my husband is into strange science fiction, fantasy, comic book, super hero stuff and some of it wears off - Sorry! The other possible rating is Waffleman! Either way - I'm terribly depressed! How is it possible that I have weak bones and none of the other Orthopedic (Bone) Drs thought of that!

OK - so the suggested treatment is to get a bone density test and hope it shows weak bones - yes I said hope for a bad outcome (this is according to Waffleman). - that way he will be able to get the Endocrinologist (yes - another Dr) to prescribe the bone generating drug that he thinks I need - without a fight! The drug in question will take 6-12 months to work!! Yippee!! In the meantime - I'm not supposed to overly stress it! Another Yippee!!

Oh - he did tell me something none of the other Docs have said - I actually have 2 stress fractures - how could I have gone for a year and not known that either????

I think it's time for some other avenue!! I'm almost done with PT for thr shoulder and that should free up time for other things!!

Thanks for listening!

A little NERVOUS...

So - tomorrow I see the "Super-Specialist"!! I really hope he lives up to his name ;-) No -really I'm looking for a cure - some magic (or otherwise) idea - wand - anything that heals my hip/pelvis and allows me to run again!

I'll let you know how it goes!

A little less hope....

OK - so the Ortho Oncologist repied to the Hip Dr and said he didn't think the OP-1 was a good idea but that he'd be willing to see me! Oh boy! Why would I see an Ortho Oncologist if I don't have cancer or a tumor you ask - well one of his special interests is Non-unions - which is what I have! So - you never know maybe he'll have a brilliant idea!!

I can only hope!!
