CT Scans Down, Surgery Scheduled!

Everything today went pretty well, I am still in shock. My doctor's appointments never ever go well, like EVER.

First when my OS came in it sounded like he wasn't going to decide on hip surgery yet, but the appointment ended with me scheduling my right hip scope! I was even offered tomorrow when scheduling surgery, since apparently someone just cancelled, but with midterms next week that was not happening. I was hoping too schedule it with my four day weekend in February but no such luck, but ended up with February 4th, which is earlier than I expected. Not happy to learn that I would miss one to three weeks of school was hoping for a week tops, oh well.

Things That Will Happen During Surgery

  1. Excess bone (FAI) will be shaved away
  2. Labrum will be repaired
  3. A biopsy of the joint lining (to check signs for RA and Lyme)


So the Rheumatologist told the OS that she didn't think that there was enough proof at this point for a rheumatology problem, and the OS thinks there are too many things for just orthopedic problems. Well isn't that just great, but nothing I can do about it.

After my OS appointment I had CT scan which was no big deal, I was in and out in like ten minutes, both hips were scanned at once. My appointment was 11:00 and I was out by 11:19. I finished so much sooner than I expected I made it back to school in time for AP Gov. I am thankful for little miracles!
