Hip Bursitis with tendonitis

Saturday, October 06, 2012

I visited the orthopedist, and he confirmed that it is hip bursitis with tendonitis. They gave me a hydrocortizone injection to help with the inflammation. I will also need to visit a physical therapist for a while.

So, it will be a little slower than I had anticipated in returning to my usual exercise schedule. I will see the therapist once a week and will then need to practice each day. That will give me something to do to help my progress. I also did the chair video on SparkPeople yesterday. That was a pretty good work out, at least I can push myself a little and still not use my right leg.

All this makes me reflect on my goals. Obviously, I want to lose the last 10 pounds and burning calories through exercising is not going to cut it right now.


1. Eat five fruits/ veggies a day.
2. Exercise daily (gentle exercise at first)
3. Stay in calorie range
4. Limit foods with no nutritional value (Eat fruit instead) emoticon

OK, feels good to have an action plan and something to work on each day.

    Your determination to push on in spite of what must be very painful is making me feel guilty about how whiny I've been lately in regards to my own efforts - which is really a very good gift! I hope you are feeling better soon and I will think of you when I get my butt back on the treadmill and do a mile with you in mind. emoticon

    I'm sorry to hear about you hip. Ouch! I've had hip bursitis. Not fun!

    Just keep pushing and you'll lose those 10.

    Hiya Julie,

    It looks like they couldn't make a decent one body between the two of us at the moment - lol - I'm sorry to hear you are suffering, but happy that you are getting the right treatment and support.

    It is difficult when you are limited in movement, but with so many good videos on site it is possible to have a decent workout. I am on my feet again, shuffling a bit still, but not too bad now at all. We can shuffle our way back to good health together my Friend.

    Sending you love and Hobbit Hugs.

    Looks like you know how to overcome this hurdle instead of letting it derail you. May you have all the success in the world to get to the goal you set for yourself!

    Well I am glad you have the name of what is going on with your hip. That's great that you have tried the chair exercises. Coach Nicole has 3 of them available.
    Your goals are sensible, I am sure you will be able to fulfill them.
    Take care of yourself. I added your name to my prayers of quick healing for your daughter a few days ago emoticon
