well, I met with my ortho. today
good news: I didn't tear my labrum! =D
badish news: He still suggests surgery for the impingement. it's either modify my activities and do therapy and hope it helps or do the surgery. I'd rather do it while I'm young. Plus, I'm too young to modify my activities!!

scheduled my surgery for Jan. 7. i'll be on crutches for 6 weeks and am not supposed to put any weight on my foot. I'll have to see what he says about doing any type of upper body. oh well, it's a small set back but I'll rebound. so much for competing in June or so. maybe later in the year...
might be better anyhow since I'll be all stressed out finishing up my Masters by May...can you say bloated with cortisol!?!? lol

Good luck!

Both with the surgery and finishing up your MA, seems like you just started! That's speedy! Is it a thesis program?

good luck with the surgery and hope you can train around it as much as possible.

Thanks for the well wishes! Had to change the surgery by a week, oh well.

Out in beautiful Idaho visiting family, may try some CrossFit on Monday if we don't go hiking or travel to a surrounding state. It sure is nice here, very action orientated!

IT WAS AWESOME!!! my brother is in the Navy and has gotten all of his guys really into it so while I was visiting I PT'ed with them a few days. tire flippin', box jumps, burpees, air squats...that sort of thing.
I found a gym not far from here that actually houses a crossfit and the price includes all the gym has to offer ( a pool!!) and the crossfit. I'm thinking of going to take a tour. much more expensive than my gym now (but my gym doesn't have a pool or any classes or stuff), but I will most likely wait until my last grad semester is over and I'm fully recovered from my hip surgery to really get into it more since I'll still be paying my other gym, my loans, I'll need to get a job, stress, blah, blah, blah... most importantly time will be short as is.


My forearms, hands and quads were crazy sore the next 2days after the tire flipping and 'it pays to be a winner'!! felt great!

oh yea, I'm preparing for surgery next week. No vitamins and meds until after and was told to avoid fortified foods until then. do you know how hard it is to find stuff without vitamins added?!? lots of rice and beans and veggies for me right now (not that its a bad thing)

So I'm 2 days post-op and it hurts like all hell!! At moments it doesn't seem too bad and then I move, lol. They have be on vicodin for the pain and I'm trying not to take it too much (I'm not a fan of pain meds, they make me a bit nauseous and super sleepy!!!)

I didn't talk to the doc after the surgery but he spoke with my husband and mom and from what I gather I did have some tearing. I meet with him for my post op next week and will find out more then I'm sure; along with my PT orders.

Right now, I'm just trying to focus on eating, the nausea is not helping! Its a bit frustrating that I can barely lift my leg! Being as active as I am I feel for the people who aren't active, how the crap do they deal with this?!?!
I take to bandages of to change them today, maybe I'll post some gross pictures later...
