Another "HIP" to moore

Yes, my right hip is wrecked, far more than my left. Dr. Olson has some pretty fancy "mooring" work to do on my right hip. My MRI results came out a few weeks back, but I have needed some time to digest. From the splotches of words in English I was able to understand this:
  • Right hip labral tear
  • cyst
  • glute tendon tear
  • cartridge is stating to wear down from the tears

The question that has been tugging at the back of my mind is will I still be eligible for a PAO. I feel in my heart that I will be, that the joint hasn't completely degraded and given the muscular problems I have been dealing with as an effect from the dysplasia, it's still seems like the right move to perform the surgery, fix the labral tear, and put my tendon back on my arse so it stops sagging :)

My hope and prayer to the Lord can be summed up in this prayer:

"God, Lord Jesus,  please help me 

I desperately need You right now
I'm all wrung out and I've nothing left
Somehow I need You to turn things around
God, can you help me"

As any other PAO patient can attest to, this is a long journey. There are many days I wonder how much longer this will all go on. In my mind, I am the young 30 something girl without limitations, but then screaming kids pull be back into reality. There are days I'm at the end of the my rope wanting this to be gone and other days I'm calm and stable. 

The bottom line is, I will have surgery of some kind. For those that read this, I ask that you pray that my surgeon is willing to move forth with the PAO. This would provide my body with proper alignment reducing stress on the muscular system allowing me to fully rehabilitation. When I try to explain complications caused by dysplasia to people, I explain hips are similar to a bridge. A badly built bridge stresses other structural components. Hips are no different. Because my hips are off, my muscles have become overly stressed. People seems to get that. 

So, in patience I will wait, with one week to go with this verse playing rewind in my  head: 

Philippians 4:6 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
