Granny Hips and College Trips

Hey peeps,

Got my MRI results on Friday and they were not exactly what I wanted to hear. I have Avascular Necrosis (AVN) in both of my hips. Not one, both. Only one of them is currently hurting due to inflammation/swelling of the joint. The cause of this, you might ask? Just another lovely perk of chemotherapy. Thank you steroids!

I’ve been pretty bummed out all weekend but am finally starting to feel back to my normal happy self. Sometimes you just have to ride out the negative feelings! I’m sad that I can’t run right now, but hopeful that I will be able to in the future. I will keep everyone updated as I continue to learn more about AVN and how severe my case is (seeing the specialist tomorrow!). In other news, I got in to my first choice college! I actually found out as I was on the way home from the doctor after finding out about my AVN. My mom and I both started hysterically laughing and crying at the same time. Crazy how life throws these curve balls at us! The video below is a little bit more of a detailed explanation of Avascular Necrosis and my feelings (hopefully tomorrow I won’t be so dead).

Thanks for reading/watching/existing,

xoxo Kathy

    • Hi Chris, to be honest, I don’t know much. I’m headed in to see a specialist tomorrow and after that will be constructing a more in depth post, so be sure to check back for more information! Hope your scan turns out to be negative, try not to worry about it too much :)
