2012 - I had Vertical Sleeve Gastric Surgery in October 2012, and this is my journey to push the fat girl aside and start living life without fear of lawn chairs, the middle seat, clothing shops and high heels. Among other things.

2017 - I'm preop for the Duodenal Switch procedure for my sleeve to help me get to goal weight....and to fix another hiatal hernia.

Hip Report! OK!

X-rays came back clean. No noticeable degeneration or malformation of the femur heads or hip socket! HURRAY!!!!!!

Now then, that means that this is soft tissue, so that still has to be sorted out. But at least I know one thing its NOT and that is important.

I'll be getting a dr's appointment and getting a scrip for some pysio and evaluation.  Maybe a gait analysis as well - since that may be one of the problems that has contributed.  But - this is all speculation, so I'll leave it for the professionals.

However, now I don't have to think about my joint grinding away while I'm walking!!!  YAY!

Happy 4th of July to you all.


  1. now that you know what its not hopefully they can help fix it sooner.
    Happy 4th!

  2. Thank you ladies! I'm very happy that I've eliminated one thing. Now on to find the cause nd get batter. I need to get exercising again!
