Health and Fitness Friday- My hip saga continues

I'm not ever sure where to start on this one.  You might remember this post about my hip surgery last year.  If you don't want to go back and read that, let me remind you-  last year (Feb 2012) I had surgery on my left hip to repair a labral tear.  I was in PT for a several months following the surgery, and finally got back to running in July or August.  I have never felt 100% since then, but my hip hasn't been as big of a problem as it was in the past.

Well, well, well.  What do you know?  My hip is killing me lately.  I am so confused by this.  Last month I was running up to 9 miles with very slight pain, sometimes no pain at all.  I didn't run at all on vacation, and I haven't done anything over 4 miles since I've been home, and the pain is back with a vengeance.  Yesterday I couldn't run more than a few blocks without the pain stopping me.   And I couldn't walk without limping!  That is NOT good!

What is really stressing me out is that I signed up for the Twin Cities Marathon.  I was planning to do a half marathon sometime this summer as a part of my training, but I'm glad I haven't signed up yet as that would only add to my stress right now (these races are expensive and offer no refund!)  I want to run the marathon, I've been planning to run it this year since before my surgery, and I really thought it was going to be ok when I signed up.

I'm making an appointment with my hip surgeon to see what's going on.  Hopefully I can get in next week with him.  I know I don't have to make any decisions yet, its not even training season yet, but of course I am worried about it!  Any encouragement would be appreciated at this point :)

Sorry to be a downer for Jen's Fitness Friday linkup :(


  1. Oh no! :( Hope everything is ok!!

  2. Bummer! I hope you get some answers soon!

  3. I sure hope it's nothing! Keep us updated friend!!! I'll be thinking of you!

  4. Never apologize for venting or talking about the things that worry you!! That's why this is such an amazing group! We have good days and bad days and that's why we encourage each other when we need it! i wish I had some advice or some sort of story to share with you to make you feel better right now but I don't. I have no idea what your doc will tell you but please know that we are all thinking of you and praying that this isn't something serious. Keep up posted honey!!!

  5. Have you gone to your doctor yet? There is a big chance you overworked your body leading to the hip problems you encountered. Your surgery may be over a year ago, but there is still a chance to injure your hips again if you are not careful and if you do too much strenuous exercise. Running may not be that much strenuous, but still, it involves a lot of lower extremity movements.
