Okay. So… about the actual appointment…
I think it was a waste of time. The guy was nice enough, as is usually the case, but he was all over the place with what it could be, and what is likely to happen. He repeated at least 3 times that I just needed some drugs and rest, and then I should be ready to go. He called it bursitis, which Kevin has explained to me it’s NOT because of the lack of pain with touching it or lying on it, and he also called it general inflammation. When I explained the pain intensity, which has occurred 3 times now but is not subsiding the way it previously has, he said, and I’m being serious, “that sucks”. Also things like, “wow! And it’s just like you really just want to run!”
He also showed back up into the room with a cortisone shot, which I declined, and he also said he saw some scoliosis. And this is why I don’t like going to the doctor.
So he wrote me a prescription for some kind of “gentle” NSAID, the old lady’s dose, he said, so that I could take extra, and told me to take it for 3 or 4 weeks. If I don’t see any improvement in that time, he’ll send me for an MRI. Oh, and he said there was some calicification on some part of my hip and that my hip bone was slightly misshapen… possibly making it injury prone. I’ve done a lot of appointments in my time… Something about this one screams a whole lotta nothing.
I don’t know. I’m calling Kevin tomorrow. I’ll try to get in to see him by the end of the week and at LEAST keep moving on this end.
I danced. And that was great.
