How bad is the arthritis cremail? Feel free to contact me with any questions as you go thru this. There is a great yahoo forum on hip resurfacing if you are interested in checking it out.
I just got diagnosed Tues.- so freaking out slightly- I thought it was a death sentence, but you and Chris are making me feel better and if you can run, then so can I ! Also, I still have to meet with the Doc to find out exactly how bad it is, more exact diagnosis and implications, and options for treatment. But, I want to keep ALL options open because I have to have an active lifestyle. I do x-train, swim, bike, pool run, etc; guess I have to do more of that and less of running... My injury is aggravated/inflamed right now, so I guess I have to address that first. hip resurfacing, prolotherqapy- all of that sounds interesting and will look into. Thanks for your support!!
......EXCELLENT attitude//.........keep us posted on how you're doing.......
I've only been diagnosed since February,
so give ME some tips as you find them out.
one of the cool things about this site is Runners helping other Runners.
Just remember Cremail, the medical model of R.E.S.T. is about to change to M.E.A.T. which means I forgot but includes inflammation as a good thing, not to be cooled off by anti-inflammatories.....................or cortisone..hang in there, your body is trying to strengthen itself right now, prolo can help it more.
