I think I messed things up. UGGG
« on: February 20, 2012, 12:59:37 PM »
Well, a week ago Sunday I had to test for my 4th degree blackbelt and since that test things have not gone well at all.  My hip has been ultra sore and I'm getting a ton of clicking and things just don't feel right.  I meet with my Surgeon on the 29th and will talk to him about it but I'm praying I didn't mess anything up.  The test wasn't all that difficult and I didn't feel like I tweaked anything during it but on the way home things just didn't feel right and it's been the same for the past 8 days.  A word to the wise is to make sure not to do stupid things like this when you're only 3 months post-op.

I hope it is nothing serious. Hopefully it is muscle pain. My best wishes for you.

Ah Pete I hope your ok! However I thinks that this is why most of the top surgeons say to wait up to 12 months.

Did your doctor allow those kinds of activities?

Hope it turns out to be muscular, not implant related.

Pete, here's hoping nothing happened to the implant. I've been through those tests, they are not for the faint of heart. Wishing good things for you, man.

What you have may be just muscular, and set you back only a bit.

Yes, I'm curious too as to what types of tests are conducted.  Please do tell.

Well, not BJJ (not my style), but in hapkido, it was a full day of testing, with both form and sparring. I did a few forms of Tae Kwon Do, but it is a more mixed style, like Jiu Jitsu. So we did sparring with hands, feet, grappling, ground fighting, etc. included. Mine lasted probably from 10 in the morning to about 3 in the afternoon. I had about six bouts, after the initial forms, etc.

In Tae Kwon Do, no grappling, pressure point techniques, etc, but the morning was devoted to forms and more forms (quite a few to cover at black belt level), other techniques and demonstrations. My school is heavy into Olympic TKD, so we have three one minute rounds with knockouts, etc. no grappling, though unfortunately. The afternoon was about six bouts with others testing for black belts, or with existing black belts. Then there were some specialized sparring, one vs. two, etc. One of my friends was testing for third degree on one test, he had to fight me without using legs, just boxing.

Interesting stuff. I was beat at the end of each day. Each school is different, though and I took the first degree tests, not 4th degree like Pete. Don't know what's involved in that.

Normally the blackbelt tests are BRUTAL and 6-8 hours long.  That being said for my 4th degree it really wasn't hard at all.  My instructor knew I had my hip replaced so it was a bit more tailored towards that.  I had to do a few rounds on the bag and didn't go hard at all with any kicking.  We did a pulling drill that might have caused some strain on my hip and some sparring but I only used my hands.  We didn't do any BJJ although I did take one of the guys down but nothing with any impact.  I really think it was just muscular to be totally honest.  I just got back from the gym and did the exercise bike for 15 minutes or so and did some adductor and abductor machines along with lunges and the eliptical.  Nothing hard and now I feel great.  I'm guessing my hip is just sore from overuse and because I rested for the week it might have just made things a bit worse.

WHEWW!!! Pete - I was hoping for this. I thought you went through a standard test. Good stuff, just take it easy and be the wise master for a bit.

Pistol,  let's hope that you really just strained everything pretty bad.  If you did you should be icing that hip every two hours and taking an anti-inflammatory twice a day.  Keep this up until you see the doc.

Good luck, I'll be hoping for the best for you.

Pete,
Hope it's nothing serious mate & like Woody said - ice, rest, ice, rest ice, rest.
Remember, this is a long term investment and you're still in relatively early days.
Congrats though - I trust you passed the test!?

Thanks Hern I appreciate it.  OK, so I hit the gym today and now I feel great.  Here is what I'm thinking.  I had the test on Sunday and was REALLY sore after.  Then took it easy Monday and Tuesday and had PT on Wed.  I struggled thru that to say the least.  Well, after PT I drove 4 hours to New York for a 3 day business meeting.  During the 3 days I sat for 6+ hours each day on uncomfortable chairs.  Needless to say I was really stiff each night and didn't have a chance to get on a bike or anything.  Then at the end of day 3 I got back in my car after sitting for 6+ hours and drove home 4 hours.  I got in really late Saturday night and then just relaxed yesterday.  I think the reason things are so sore is because of the above...

Well you forgot to mention those. That definitely would have done a job on me where you are test or no. Oh well. Good that you feel fine, keep it going.
