So last year, August, I had surgery done to remove a huge soft tissue tumour from my right thigh. My Dr said it must have been growing for years. I only realize there was a lump when i went for an MRI as it was hurting so bad. Thank goodness it was benign.
I was diagnosed with ostheoarthritis 15 years ago but it was under control but the pain eventually came back. I went for chiropractic treatment but it didnt help. Then a good friend introduced me to dancing then the pain was gone. No kidding. The pain came back only after the soft tissue tumour op. One muscle was removed and then there was only one left. My poor right hip had to work extra hard.
So last week, I had total hip replacement (THR) on my right. Down time 6 to 8 weeks and full recovery time prob 6 months to 12 months, depending on individuals age n strength. So no dancing for time being. Wondering why i MIA? now you know.
I was feeling depressed during those months of pains. Just wanted to have dinner, shower and sleep after work.
I will let you know after 6 months if it was worth going under the knife.
I am not seeking sympathy. Just wanted to share my experience. And feel free to ask me if anyone has similar problem and would like to know more about the procedure.
Lastly, i have not forgotten the baking classes i wanted to conduct. Will set up the dates once i am fully recovered.
In the meantime, take care and enjoy life to the fullest.
