Update on my hip

Sep 29, 2017 10:07 PM

So on Tuesday I went to a new doctor for my hip. He is so much better than my other one. This doctor took an x-ray of my hip when I first came in, he was explaining the symptoms of the nerve coming back, he scheduled an MRI for me, he gave excersises for my PT to do with me, and he is trying to schedule nerve study for me. My other doctor didn't want to do any of those things and just told me to rub and pat my leg.
They are afraid that I might be pinching another nerve because one nerve (not sure what its called) only goes down to the knee and when I fell I lost all feeling in my entire leg. I can't get my quad to fire so therefore they won't let me out of the brace because of stability. Although my new doctor said depending on what the MRI says, I might be able to get out of the hip brace and into a knee brace. The doctor said that the nerve takes a brake for a month after injuring it and then it comes back a millimeter a day. So every month I get one inch back of normal feeling, it will take about two years for the nerve to come back all the way. Which is a really long time!
I could use some prayers that we can get into the MRI sooner, it is scheduled for two weeks from today, and that there is nothing wrong with my hip on the MRI. Also that the nerve will come back and my quad.
Also I'm off crutches.
Sorry if I jumped around a lot.
