Journal entry by Abigail Johnston —
The orthopedic oncologist called today (finally) and told me that the X-rays showed the likely culprits of my pain are humdrum anatomical anomalies and old bleeding that has calcified. We are still going to do the mri to rule out any issues that we can’t see with the X-ray but it appears that all the great physical exercise I’d implemented when we moved to miami and then wasn’t consistent at since the cruise was keeping me from feeling the pain. Rather than anything invasive, the prescription so far is more yoga and exercise. I have a feeling tonight will be much more restful with this interim answer!! No hip replacement yet.
