8 Weeks Post Op

2 months.  Time flies when you’re having fun… not.  Seriously time has flown by it seems.  I went up to my work to fill out my schedule starting the second week of December.  It seems surreal that I’ll be back in a month-ish and I’m really nervous about it.  I had a dream last night that I came back to work right now and they assigned me 3 really difficult (physically) patients.  Obviously my subconscious is seeing my true feelings.

I am still having that burning pain along my inguinal ligament on the right side.  It’s not constant and it’s not severe.  I emailed my doctor’s PT and she seems to think it’s soft tissue inflammation and it doesn’t sound like a nerve problem.  I’ve asked people in the forum and they think it might be iliopsoas tendonitis.

I had PT yesterday and she did some tests to see if it might be iliopsoas tendonitis but those didn’t really show any of that.  I’m wondering if it might be referral pain from my adductors?  She put a patch with medicine that helps inflammation on the spot she thinks is causing it.  We will see if that helps.

Otherwise, things are going well with the hip.  She tested my gluteus medius strength and she was very pleased with it.  She also tested my glutes and apparently they are super strong.  I’m happy about this.  I just wonder if they are firing properly and maybe my hip flexor and adductor is working overtime.

I’m so ready to be done with this.  So ready.
