What's The Deal With Lefty?

So, my left hip....she's tricky.

Doc said that while my right hip needed to be corrected by about 20 degrees, old lefty only needs, at best, a 10 degree correction. Doc said that he'd rather not do a 10 degree PAO unless it's absolutely necessary. But he did say I was welcome to have an Arthrogram/MRI - gee, really? Thanks! Basically, I am back to the beginning. Doc says I should wait it out until I can't take the pain in my left side anymore. Then we'll go for the PAO.

I suppose it could be worse.

The sick thing is that I was kind of looking forward to having another PAO. Not the surgery/recovery, but the finality of it. The knowing that this is it. All finished!

Oh well, it's a waiting game for all of us, isn't it? This life thing....I guess it's what we do while we're waiting that counts. Me? I'm still going to insist on finishing culinary school and despite what anyone thinks, I will be a pastry chef. While I wait.

I suggest you do what ever it is you fancy while you wait.
