So I've heard it from a doctors lips, they need to do x-rays on my hip and then possibly other scans to find out if it's avascular necrosis. Something scared inside of me says it is.

I had to see a walk in clinic doctor who doesn't know the specifics about me like my specialized doctors do. He thinks it's possible to get graft/vs/host in the joints which I have never even heard of. When I go to walk in clinic doctors offices I have to bite my lip from complaining but to be fair they usually only see people for cuts bruises and colds. I am a whole other animal.

I hope I'm just panicking and that it's just arthritis. Funny now I'd be happy with just arthritis when a week ago I cursed it.

I called the Vancouver BMT unit where they are always available to help a bone marrow transplant patient. They hauled out my chart (which is likely the size and weight of a small bus) and the triage nurse is going to get back to me.

Ok, just spoke to the nurse who consulted with the doctors and they have a plan for me to get this checked out. I've calmed down and am heading out for an X-ray. Keep your fingers crossed for me that it's nothing serious.

I know! On the upswing, I at least got to see what my hip socket looks like on an x-ray.
