As most people know, we sold our home and moved into the trailer my sister and I own. The months of June and July were spent moving heavy boxes and containers of clothes, house goods, tools, and everything that needed to be moved out of the house and into the trailer. Moving all of these heave boxes put a big strain on my back. I was in PAIN!
I’ve been struggling with this pain in my lower back and hips for probably 2 months. I had x-rays and am still currently going to physical therapy. The bank pain was better but the hip and groin area were still painful. Sister said I was walking like I had a stick up my Vajayjay. Wanting to rule out a medical or female issue, I went to my family doctor who ordered a CT Scan.
Today, at UPMC I got a CT Scan. Because they were wanting to rule out medical, the CT Scan we preformed to show any medical issues. For this scan I was asked to drink a special liquid called an “oral contrast” one hour before my test. It was mixed with a raspberry flavor. I had to drink two large cups of this stuff.
I was also hooked up to an IV so a contrast dye could flow through my veins. I wonder if I will glow in the dark tonight!
I had a raspberry-colored tongue.
RESULTS OF MY TEST:
I have a fractured hip. I do not have any more info so stay tuned for updates as I get them.
Will this delay our heading to Florida for the winter?
