Went to the doc today and got my "sentence" (only kidding). I have been Dx'd with greater trochanter bursitus AND osteoarthritis in my hip. Sooooo, course of prednisone, Rheumatologist, and on and on and on. Geesh....talk about feeling old!!! First my hands, now my hips!! Will it ever stop? Oh almost forgot my knees!!
Anyway, I still plan on going on to graduate with my BSN. Never has been much that holds me down anyway. I'll just keep my percocet's handy for when I really need them and follow the Doc's orders (most of the time).
Thought I'd just update everyone with what I found out.
