It just hurts somewhat more than usual....i CAN walk, albeit w/pain(but that is not so unusual these days).....
What, beyond what we have already discussed, would be the symptoms i should be on the lookout for for a fractured hip?
Just looked at the picture, "arbagel(where did THAT name come from???!!!?)--" --it is pretty awful. I do not think MY leg looks like that, but i shall have T. ck. when he gets up from his nap.
We did a kinda large amount of shopping earlier(well, LATE for YOU!!LOL!!)today--i did OK, but sure was happy to get home!! I'd decided not to go "swimming"-such as it now is-i basically can 'only' walk across the pool for 15 mins., not swim- :( but i suspect i felt the same way, w/o the other Body Parts feeling all lubed up, as they do after "swimming," after all of the walking, etc.-so perhaps i SHOULDA gone 'swimming" after all! Pain is worse that usual today, but that could happen ANY day;some are worse that others.At any rate, i am staying put(not easy for me!)the rest of the day,w/the heating pad occasionally and basic resting--'don't think it is fractured;am i being foolish not to get an XRay NOW?I see Dr. G. on Wed.----What do you think?Would i have been able to have done as much were it to have been fractured?
