    lclemur got a reaction from logicwand in Osteoarthritis- pelvic and hip bones pain, is anyone experiencing this?   
    Oooh! It is great I found this thread. I have lost 80 lbs since my surgery in February. For the past few months (6?) I have been tender/achy in my left hip, and, infrequently, in my right. My husband said I was limping. I had a broken ankle about a decade ago, and this often caused a limp when I was tired. It really got uncomfortable after a week vacation with heavy walking. Finally spoke to the doctor about it. She took some x-rays of both of my hips and pelvis. THE VERY NEXT DAY, the nurse called me back to report that the doctor diagnosed SEVERE arthritis in both of my hips! I asked "Severe?" She said "Yes." I asked, aghast, "Both?" She repeated "Yes." Well holy shit! I have been walking around like a confused, scared Zombie, for the last week. I see the Orthopaedist on Thursday, so I will know more then. I am 52.

    I think some of my depression/anxiety was due to carb withdrawal. I would ABSOLUTELY not let this stop you. I had NO problems with my meds after surgery. I take my mental health very seriously, so I can totally understand your fear.

    And I thought you were going to share something "Juicy!" Thanks so much for sharing, Elode! I am exactly where you are! I reached goal last week! I have officially lost 100 lbs! It is so damn unbelievable, isn't it? I went to a Greek Festival yesterday that I go to every year. Most people didn't recognize me, and I spent the day reintroducing myself! Go out and Celebrate at Goodwill! :0)

    AND, if that isn't scary enough, MAJOR constipation is linked to this as well. Well, S&=t! Pun intended.

    It is a bitter pill to swallow, isn't it? I have learned, for myself, it isn't a number, but how you feel. A lot of "professionals" have set my goal much lower than I would. I am 5'7" and am currently 170. I feel and look great. I am wearing between a 14 and 16 (no W!) Most people think I am a 12. Point is, on the BMI I am still listed as "overweight," and I am fine with that. Most will acknowledge that the BMI is flawed, at best. Congratulations on making so much progress! You are an inspiration! I don't like going to the gym either. Currently I am incapacitated, and wishing I could exercise...go figure....
