The good news: No fracture.
The bad news: Two tears and hematoma.
My gluteus minimus and tensor fascia latae are torn. The hematoma is just from the internal bleeding (from those tears). The doctor said he could aspirate the hematoma but recommended letting it resolve on its own. Otherwise, the treatment is just rest.
Rest for 4 more weeks. As in, no running. No. Running. For. Four. More. Weeks.
I'm to ice the area and rest. Avoid stairs and hills. If I don't have pain, I can walk (wooo!) and I can try out biking, if I'm so inclined. Honestly, I'm not all that inclined given that a) I don't own a bike and b) I'm about as spastic a bike rider as they get.
But, I might be tempted after another week or two of inactivity. We'll see.
In the meantime, I'll do my best not to mope.
If this blog gets too mopey, feel free to give me a virtual kick in the shin. What can it hurt? I can't run anyway.
