I am sure I have complained enough that everyone is aware I have bad hips. The orthopedist says chronic bursitis in both hips caused by either the radiation or the chemo’s or the combo of both. The top of whatever bone in my leg that goes into my hip joint turns out as I use it and then eventually turns so much it kind of turns up and one leg ends up an inch or so shorter than the other and then it just gets ugly.
Jogging hurts, walking hurts, running doesn’t. Go figure. I do what I can to keep it in check and just move on.
Except yesterday I hurt my hip. I mean it really stings now and I am here just to tell you how I did it. By taking off my shoe. That’s right, taking off my shoe. I reached around the back up my foot with my other foot and put my toe on a shoe and went to push it off and it felt like someone stabbed me in the hip joint. I AM SO OLD NOW!
