Dislocated my hip three months after a hip surgery. Please pray for me.

Jul 27, 2017 2:05 AM

So I was at PT yesterday and I was doing lungs on a slide bord. Well I lost my balance and dislocatedy hip, the one I had surgery on in April. They were trying to find out what was wrong with me while I lay there in the worst pain I have ever been in. I couldnt move at all
Not even to flip over onto my back, my mom and the physical therapist got me on to my back, but the pain was so bad I started screaming for them to stop.
Final when I lost all felling in my foot and the color wasn't right, and I almost passed out on them twice they called 911. The firefighters gave me some pain meds until the ambulance got there. When the bilance got there they had to have four guys lift me, so I would hurt when they did it, to get me onto the stretcher. But it still hurt, hut not as bad since I had some pain meds. They got me to the hospital and took some x-rays and found out that I had dislocated it, which o already knew because I could feel it pop out of place. They sent for a surgeon who took forever to get to the ER. While I waited for him they gave me more pain meds but that did nothing
They also tries to take my blood but because of the meds my blood was clotting. And it didn't help that I had someone who didn't know what she was doing, so I have 5 IV places, one the fire department did but it wasn't in all the way so they said they couldn't use it, but they ended up using it any way. They finally took me back at I believe 6:30 and my injury was around 2. They put under and relocated my hip. I can't fell my right leg at all but the doctor said its normal. I am now in a hospital room trying to get some sleep but failing. I am in much less pain then before. But I scared cause they are going to do an MRI at some point to see if I damaged anything they had fixed in the surgery that happened in April. So I'm praying that everything will look fine. I see my hip surgeon, the one who did my first surgery, I see him tomorrow to see what I can and can't do. Oh and the worst part, yesterday o swam cause I was around, and now I can't swim for who knows his long. Before yesterday I hadn't swam for 13 months.
I just need prayer's.

So sorry to hear how much you had suffered. Look forward to healing and being able to get back to swimming again. My prayers 🙏🏻 Are with you.

Oh my, I hope that the MRI shows everything is good and that you're able to get back in the pool to swim. I also hope that your physical therapist takes more care in the exercises that you can do and builds you up more slowly to the more intricate and difficult exercises.

Sending you positive vibes and warm healing hugs xx

Thanks for putting that so diplomatically Sezzy... I was just going to say...What The Hell...??? Im not for PT and I'm not all against it either but he'll they should know better!!! That's their freaking job!!! I'm furious for your sake...what is the guy doing this on the side!??

I was thinking of that too surly a PT should have gone slower and you shouldn't have been put in a position where you could of injured yourself that close to having hip surgery 🤔

The physical therapy that I do is not normal therapy. Its called ARP. The exercise I was doing I had done before. It was just a totally random thing that happened. But I'm back home now.
The doctor doesn't want me to get an MRI since it would all just be inflamed. So hopefully I will end up having nothing bad show up on the MRI, when I have it.

I will be thinking of you 🤞🏼

So I saw the Dr. today and he said still six weeks on crutches and in a brace, and no PT. No new news there. But he said that after those six weeks I will most likely start PT again. It will be another six weeks til any imaging and then they will decide if I tore something again and if I need another surgery.
All this means no high school swimming, AGAIN!! I want to cry!
