so sorry its taken me so long to post here.. its been a Rollercoaster ride the past few months and didnt want to post till i knew more
So Surgery went really well, it was worse than they though from what they had seen in the MRI pre Surgery so it was a good desicion to have the surgery.
I made sure i ate super healthy and drank coconut and green juices every day for optimat recovery as well as Eucommia Bark Tincture from Dragon Herbs to supplement and help recover and grow the damaged tissue , bones, cartilages and ligaments.
I had a really amazing Physio which i saw 2 -3 times a week and was on top of it all..did my 2 times daily on the hometrainer as ordered by my doctor and after a month i was able to start with a gentle Yoga again..To bear in mind certain positions. I was supposed to walk on crutches for 2 weeks but ditched them after 5 days as i didnt feel the need anymore.
I started to be able to walk again really well after about 6 week and my surgeon was really impressed and could hardly believe how fast i healed after my 8 week post surgery check up. So everything was going amazing.
I then travelled to Burning Man and had the most amazing time dancing and being..(no problems at all anymore, so dancing was no issue and didnt result in pain) Day 5 of burning Man i dislocated my hip (the operated one)all of a sudden. They couldnt get it back in there so they had to transfer me from Black Rock City to Reno Hospital (2 hours Ambulance) then tried again for the 4th time to get in in without success..they had to get the orthopaedic surgeon in at 3am and i had to go into theatre with a GA. Sucess this time after the Hip being out for 7 ,5 hours.. i was lucky as the cut off time for loosing a limb is 8 hours approx.
Anyways, most painful thing i have ever experienced in my entire life.
I wasnt able to walk straight for 3 weeks and was on crutches..due to the man attempts popping the hip back in they had broken the head of my Femur bone too, but luckily enough the operated part was all still in one piece which was pretty impressive and none of the Doctors could believe what had happened.
Debriefing with my Surgeon (i was so scared he would yell at me for dancing 3 months post surgery), he appologised to many times as this is not supposed to happen and said i didnt do anything wrong. He said he most likely took to much of my hip bone off during surgery. Usually not a problem but maybe my natural anatomy was just different and made to have more bone than the majority of people. (when they did the labrum repair he took some of the hip bone of the hip socket off)
Its been a rollercoaster and definitely a massive learning curve..i wasnt able to do ANY yoga or anything for a long time...i couldnt even sit properly (not even crossed legged) so i started to meditate just in savasana instead..working on positive mind set, on motivation , on power of manifestation in positive thinking.
It was extremely frustrating and i still dont quite understand what it is the universe has given me to learn..i do know that is was total detachment of my ego..even though i thought i had detached post surgery i was to eager with my practice i think..even though all went well..so now after this, i had no other choice than to fully let go of all ... and something really precious to mention, which has nothing to do with the actual hip, but due to all of this i now am engaged to the love of my life whom i met at burning man on my first night:) if i wouldnt of had the accident we wouldnt of ever seen eachother again. now though, i had to stay in Reno 3 more weeks due to not being able to fly and we could continue to unfold and experience our burning man love:)
Its been 7 months since the Dislocation now and only since 2 weeks i have been able to start with a yoga practice again and am going to classes .. I feel that i slowly slowly am improving but i still have an awful lot of problems and mostly pain..(not since ive started yoga again) I do have to be VERY concious of my ego during my practice and not over do it.
I have another MRI and check up in 3 weeks so will give you all an update.
So my lesson and opinion and advice for all of this: If you have a tear, try healing it with a concious Yoga Practice and Physio first, really resting that Hip thats injured (so no warrior poses, no backbends, no Hip openers, no crossed legged sitting etc). if its not better after a few months then surgery is an option but really communicate well with your surgeon on what he is doing and see if your ok with it all, do research, ask people. Listen to your intuition, to your heart.. you are the only person who knows whats right for YOU.
If you do have surgery, take the surgeons advice for recovery and also follow your own intuition and heart as long as you can leave the EGO away..you will know what is good for you and what is not. and most of all POSITIVE THINKING, motivation and BELIEF!!! You will need to strengthen those muscles and ligaments but first they need to rest and recover after surgery before you use them again..

Hope i could help those whom read this Thread..
Blessings , Sparkles and gratitude to the universe for the lesson it gives us
