Lady Gaga and I

It was recently announced Lady Gaga has a torn labrum in her right hip, and will be undergoing surgery on it, just like the one I had last week. As sorry as I am for Lady Gaga, and do not want anyone to have to go through this I am also kind of excited.

I know that sounds horrible but have a celebrity have a hip scope will create awareness. When I tell people I had hip surgery they often assume I meant I had a hip replacement. And if someone asks why I am on crutches and I respond saying I had hip surgery, many times they do not know how to respond to a 17 year old who had hip surgery because clearly that can only happen to old people. Hip braces are so rare most people don't even know what it is, someone asked me why I had such a weird knee brace once (in their defense the top part was mostly covered).

Another thing about Lady Gaga is she tested borderline positive for Lupus, and auto-immune disease that can cause joint inflammation. The original reason she cancelled her tour was due to joint inflammation. Connection maybe? Yet the media keeps blaming it on her footwear and her active life style. As someone who probably has an auto-immune disease I really wish she would be more open about it to the public instead of letting the media make wrong assumptions.
