Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Pain in left hip, saw Dr Marwin today, good news
« on: March 14, 2013, 08:15:35 PM »
Around Christmas I had a doozy of a crash on the mountain bike.  I didn't land on my hip, I landed on my shoulder and head.  I twisted the hip as it was coming out of the pedal.  It was sore and I called it a day.  I did run the next day and it really only hurt getting back into my truck afterward.  It was getting better but then one day in February I did a hard track workout, running, and then a lot of kicking in the pool.  It hurt like all heck the next day and I called the doctor.  With a trip to Hawaii in the middle it took until today to see him.  I did my first triathlon of the comeback while in Hawaii with the run on the deep sand. I had a good race with no problems. A few days later after another swim with lots of kicking I was sore again.  Had the X-ray the other day and it was negative.  I thought it would be.  Saw Dr Marwin today and he says its a groin strain or sprain and that it will heal slowly.  And that I can keep training around it

Back on the anti-inflamitories and back on the ice and heat.  And I've got to be more careful on the mountain bike.

Good news, Woodstock - just the usual training pains and strains.  ;D
 
Nice to think of it that way. Not that I minimize groin pulls or strains, but it's a normal part of being an athlete.

Yes Hern, at first I thought it was nothing.  Then when I had that first really painful day I figured I'd better get it checked.  Luckily it's just a warning that I have to be a little more careful especially on the mountain bike.

All's well that ends well I guess.
