Going for my D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine) over here. Excellent post John and dgage!
I just donated, and agree this is a great thread!
My story (via my iPhone my notes so when I state to various doctors same story):
Jan-end -2014 1st time pain came after all day Saturday sitting mostly for robotics competition, it was nerve pain up/down leg could not walk hardly
Feb-7 -2014; went snow skiing big weekend and able to do most everything w/o issue
Feb-2014 ;Pain got worse and continuous, felt like "knife scrapping my RH bone" went to Dr Kopel, xrays revealed arthritis on RH side only, he wrote script for PT, I scheduled then cancelled PT. Used walking cane, got 3 month handicap car cling. Started really feeling pain.
Mar-2014; went to Adv Orthopodic in Brighton, xrays. Started immediately more pills/vitamins.
April-May; Adv Ortho (1) cortosine shot and (3) Supartz shots into hip
May-2014 Saw Dr Kopel again, got PT script
May/June; PT did before Japan 2 week trip, then again before 3 week vacation
PT person stated my lower L3/4/5 nerve slight pinch causing "bone" pain,
June-July vacation; self PT freed up hip flexor, yet pain still persistent in hip joint, cannot sleep face down or on RH side, sleep very broken
August-2014 MRI reveals I have hip labral tear
, this Friday I see Ortho doctor and trying to schedule 2nd opinion at U of M for next week.
Pain sucks, I've had it 24/7 since Feb-2014.
Is empathy a learned emotion or ?
All I know is suddenly I see so many people who are in pain....and feel for each and every one of them.
We share stories in the hallway, on the stairs, etc.
I'm looking forward to simply playing and running with my kids, I had to quit being soccer coach due to this, I'm still cubmaster.
sorry for longpost, this thread touched me in a emotional way I did not expect.
