The Body

Hips Do Lie. They Do.

I had the cortisone injection yesterday. The orthopedist didn’t want to do it, but I threatened to fall apart from pain and frustration, so he pacified me with a jab.

He claims I have iliotibial band syndrome. So that’s now four diagnoses I’ve had (and two x-rays, not that they help one whit).

Physical therapy is next. Meanwhile, the hip’s not hurting so much; it’s just tired and weak.

I wish someone would get it right and I could get it fixed and get on with my life. I’m tired of limping and being irritable.
