One of the many complications of Sickle Cell is Avascular Necrosis, and guess what, I have a double dose of it. Now, I'm past the grieving stage. I'm done crying. So now I'm in phase of acceptance and solution mode.
I'm done suffering with hip pain; crunching of hip joint and reduced functionality (walking, standing, dancing), and EVERYTHING else the hips do for our body. I'm willing to face my fears, trust God and jump (onto a surgeons table) for the first of two hip replacements.
I'll keep you all posted on the details (good & bad).
Say a prayer & wish me luck. First appointment January 5th!!!!!
