I’m not looking forward to this week at all. I have known it has been coming for the past 6 months. This week I will be checking in to the Mercy Hospital here in Melbourne to fix an old injury in my hip. Some damage to my hip has caused a bone spur to grow over time and eventually limiting my leg movement. Late last year it started to become very painful. So this week I will be undergoing something called Hip Arthroscopy with one of the best orthopedic surgeons in town. It’s only a short stay in the hospital and will be on crutches for a little while afterwards. I just hope I do’t have to see the torture devices (above) before I go under. This machine will be used to dislocate my leg. That’s right… REMOVE MY LEG!
I’m really not looking forward to it at all. I have been having lots of sleepless nights. I can’t wait till this time next week when it’s all over.
