bike commute | lunch run | ultrasound

Today my right hip maybe felt better?

It was a beautiful day - 65 degrees! I ran with Frank Barber again and we chatted the entire time. Man it was nice to be out in the sun. We added a tiny extra piece of Interlaken trail to our Foster Island loop. Good times.

I left work early and headed up to Seattle Radiology to get an ultrasound on my hip/lower abdomen. The goal here was to finally prove/disprove the hernia theory.

When you get an ultrasound for a hernia they keep asking you bear down/contract your muscles. the technician must have asked me to do this 50 times, it was a great core workout!

After tons of scanning the ultrasound technician said I had a bulge on the right side but that it was not super conclusive and she was going to call in the Radiologist and scan some more with her in the room. I was told I was "too fit" for a definitive diagnosis...?! I think what she meant was that I have lots of muscle definition in my abs and it was harder to tell if the bulging/movement was a hernia or normal muscle movement. Whatever. The Radiologist confirmed this (way too vague for my liking) diagnosis and I was sent on my way. :(

I will talk to my doctor Monday to discuss the results.
