    Another surgery

    It looks like I have to get hip surgery to fix a chondral tear. This is the same injury they have to do surgery on every year to fix I don't know how many surgery I have had now, and probably rather not think about it.



    Luckily our 2 horses are foals, so taking time off from them is no problem. They can lounge around and continue to be babies. Very frustrating! And *trying to think happy thoughts*

    Good Grief. It seems like every time you heal and move forward you have to step back! Well... at least you have the patience of a saint.

    I don't mind the questions at all I was born with hip dysplasia. Its something that is now routinely checked for at birth, but when I was born in 80's it wasn't, and it was missed. Because of it I had to have reconstruction to correct it in my early 20's(im now 28). Unfortunately the damage to the hips is quite severe and have required repetitive surgery at least once a year.

    Oh my goodness.

    Off Topic: We are doing Mother/Baby in Nursing school, and we just watched a newborn assessment and they did a check for hip dysplasia on the newborns. We will be doing these checks when we go to clinic over the next few weeks.

    How interesting...And painful for you.

    Well now you can say you've seen what happens when a hip dysplasia baby is missed. I was missed and started dislocating and having pain symptoms when I turned 21. I was referred to a hip specialist who found my case to be so severe and unusual they made a news story about it, and turned my story into a case study. I am to this day the top patient in calgary most orthopods in Calgary want to study! The link below is actually me 7 years ago before I was married.


    The surgery in the video, is the one I have to get again for the 8th time...
