As I lay on the table after my pain management shot procedure had finished (it took less them five minutes), my doctor said to me, “No hula hooping for four days.” Ah, crap, but it was probably for the best.
Frankly, I was really sore for a few days afterwards. I felt ok, just sore in the injection site. And I had to miss class on Monday, since it was the last of my four days.
Ah, I did hoop last night after dinner. It was wonderful. Glorious. It felt so good to get back to doing what I love. I tried to not overdo the hooping to the point of going back to square one with the hip problem, but I did hurt a little after I was done. I will probably need a second shot, and that’s what the doctor told me, anyway.
I’m slowing working hooping back into my life. It’s about time.
