  • [ – ] AmandaFood reply Thanks for sharing your hip surgery story with us. I was curious about it when you mentioned it in a previous vlog. :( wow could not imagine the pain. Glad it's better for you now and wow when yall walked for that long time in your jello leg vlog <3 Does it hurt with weather changes?
    • JessicaMartwin parent reply Awe thanks. And yes! It's the weirdest thing ever. I feel like an old lady when I tell people that haha. I'm just glad the whole hip thing is over with. Well, for the most part. I still have to visit my doctor back in STL in July. I'm actually in a research study because the PAO is a very new surgery.
  • [ – ] JustABloke reply This is definitely not a boring vlog, putting your experiences out there on a traumatic surgery procedure can ease the fears of those who are about to face the same procedure. Good luck on your interview, the Nursing profession is definitely your calling, unless you decide to become a rock mega star or something else I'm sure you'd be good at that as well. By the time I post this comment, I guess it would be your birthday, so "Happy birthday Jessica and Sarah". How can you NOT like fishing, maybe you would enjoy it more if you adopted the catch and release attitude, where the hunt, outsmarting and catching your prey is your goal.
    • JessicaMartwin parent reply Oh yeah, I didn't thin about that. I wish all those that have hip dysplasia the best. It is seriously very hard to deal with. I always believe when people say they are in pain now when it comes to joints. Thanks for the kind words. I hope the interviews went well haha. I felt fairly confident but who knows. THANKS!! We had a really good birthday. I like it just not as much as Sarah. I prefer to sit and watch. I just love being surrounded by nature.
  • [ – ] USUandS reply I'm not sure if I've actually heard the full story til now. It's definitely not boring and I mean not only that but maybe there's other people going through something similar or have had similar experiences with same pain. Regardless, I'm glad you're not going through it anymore. Ooo and have fun fishing! Very nicely planned to have the interview first then birthday fun.
    • [ – ] JessicaMartwin parent reply I am so glad that it is almost done. I go back to the doctor in July because I am in a research study because the surgery is still new. Thanks for listening. Pain is so hard to deal with! It made life so hard for me and those around me. Thanks! And yes, it worked out great.
      • [ – ] USUandS parent reply Oh interesting; are they just keeping track of what's going on? I'm glad you just aren't going through the pain anymore. Hopefully y'all had some birthday fun which I'm sure I'll see in the next vlog :p
        • JessicaMartwin parent reply Yes, they want to see how the hip is healing and how the anatomy has changed. They also want to evaluate pain. I feel 100000000x better now that my hip barely ever hurts anymore. Its a huge relief.
  • [ – ] therunningrebel reply It sucks that it took them so long to figure out what was wrong with you, but I'm so so so glad that it's finally fixed and that you're mostly healed. Have you tried doing some stretching or gentle yoga to help the tightness and limited range of motion? Oh and happy birthday again!! 😁
    • [ – ] JustABloke parent reply I just got a light bulb moment, at 5:30am, just before you start your run, call @JessicaMartwin , ask her how her hip is holding up, if she actually answers the phone at that ungodly hour and replies it's sore, there's a thunderstorm coming your way and you should probably stay indoors. No need to thank me, I like helping fellow runners.
      • therunningrebel parent reply Haha that's a great idea!!! I don't think she'll appreciate that very much though, because she lives in the mountain time zone now, and there an hour behind us here in the central time zone, so I'd be waking her up at 4:30 am lol.
      • JessicaMartwin parent reply HAHAHHA! I would be up at that time if she was in the Mountain time zone. But at 530 her time it's 4:30 here so I would not be up. Also, I keep my phone on silent at night. But if I did see her calling I would definitely answer :D
    • [ – ] JessicaMartwin parent reply It was terrible. I was so miserable! You can ask Sarah, mom, or Ethan haha. It was like a black storm cloud was always over me. I have tried a few stretches but not much. You'll have to share some with me haha. Maybe in a video?? Anyway, thanks!!
      • [ – ] therunningrebel parent reply Hahaha I know, they all complained about you a lot. ;) But I mean, I think everyone just felt so bad that you were in so much pain but no one could help. Hmmmm maybe I will do that! :)
        • JessicaMartwin parent reply Haha, yeah sure... Everyone was so tired of me hahahaha. I'm sure sometimes they wanted me to have the surgery more than I did. So glad it's almost completely better.
  • [ – ] theoldsparrow reply I'm glad you're getting back be able to hike and run. When a condition like that side swipes you it takes a long time to recover but you're getting there. Happy Birthday to both of you and I hope you impressed the pants off of the interviewers today.
    • JessicaMartwin parent reply Thanks. I feel like I am back in control of my life now that I am almost free of pain. It was terrible. I was a very athletic and outdoorsy person and when that was taken away from me I felt so empty. Thanks! We had a really good day. I really hope the interview went well. I can't wait to be able to help care for patients.
  • [ – ] ThePrincessNeshh reply My sister had hip surgery, and she was only 12 years old. Someone push her and broke her hip. I had to take care of because everyone else was at school or working. I was in college then. I will do anything for my sister. So I decided to take a break from college to take care of her. She didn't like the pain or physical therapy but we make it. I help her with her homework, take her places and trying to get her back on her feet. I know college was important but it was worth it to take care of my sister.
    • JessicaMartwin parent reply Oh wow, that's terrible. She's lucky to have a sister like you :) You're very kind to care for her. It is amazing to have family members like you. I think that is amazing that you did that for your sister! My twin flew from Alaska to Illinois to take care of me haha. Sisters seem to be awesome :D
  • [ – ] MFKraven reply i cant imagine not sleeping on my side, i would die if i had to sleep on my back. god speed my friend! I'm glad you're doing better
  • [ – ] DrCut reply I upvoted for your courage and thank you for sharing with us your story.
  • [ – ] Flying_Purple_Pizzas reply You went through a seriously traumatic and long lasting event! Your poor body! I am glad you got relief and healing. Happy birthday to you and Sarah! I wish you success on your interview and a good day overall. Thanks for sharing the details of your experience. Not boring at all!
    • JessicaMartwin parent reply It was terrible but I am glad that I am almost back to 100%. I'd say I'm 90% better, so I'm getting there. Thank you so much :D We both say thank you. It was a huge part of my life so I thought I'd share. It was the worst thing I have ever experienced.
  • [ – ] SurfersSelfies reply thanks for sharing :)
  • [ – ] SurfersSelfies reply wow thats crazy. i hope u keep feeling better :)
  • [ – ] Star_Wars6collector reply I had pain for 15 years and now I am 100% back pain free
      • Star_Wars6collector parent reply a simple adjustment I figured out allowed me to pop my own hip back into place and the other part is for your lower back, I give details in the comments under the video on how to cure your back pain, the pain is caused because your blood flow gets restricted to your lower back,
  • [ – ] Star_Wars6collector reply watch my video's because I show you how to get rid of all lower back pain as well as to pop your hip into place, as well you can read the detailed comments to see how it is done, better then the therapists,
    • [ – ] JustABloke parent reply This is definitely worth looking at, thanks for mentioning it.
      • [ – ] Star_Wars6collector parent reply the worst thing is when you go to doctors and they tell you it is all in your head, that is the stupidest thing ever because everything registers in the brain so of course it is in your head, pain pulses messages to indicate where the problem of the blood flow restriction is, then it is up to us how to work out the scar tissue to make that blood flow correctly once again, then the pain goes away in an instant,
        • JessicaMartwin parent reply YES! I hate that. When they can't seem to find something wrong they always assume it's in your head. It's horrible. Doctor's don't care about people. Well, for the most part it seems. They're just in it for the money.
  • [ – ] dalestark05 reply great video i hope you both have a great Birthday i hope you get the job and Thanks for sharing your hip surgery story keep up the great videos you rock
  • [ – ] GunDoctorTV reply Thanks for sharing!
  • [ – ] YourSugoiStrwbry reply My grandfather had hip surgery after he fell onto our driveway. It went well and he stayed until he got discharged, but about a week later the bolts in the plate fell out and he had to do the surgery…again, so he did it twice
    • [ – ] JessicaMartwin parent reply Oh man, that sucks! I hope everything is okay now. I have heard that it isn't all that uncommon for the surgical hardware to come out of place.
      • [ – ] YourSugoiStrwbry parent reply It's okay now since it happened years ago, but that was his last surgery since the Doctor have told him that he can't have anymore since he may not make it.
  • LeWatcher reply Cool bro you're so hip and swag with your Snapback
  • [ – ] Markusooi reply I am glad the surgery went well and you are doing so much better now.
  • [ – ] whako reply Thank you for sharing us this story and glad you could overcome this obstacle, stay strong always Jessica!
  • [ – ] lordcooler reply sorry i did not notice the ring around your iris also. thats very bad i highly suggest you contact dr robert morse clinic first thing in the morning
    • JessicaMartwin parent reply ummm... I don't think so but I'll check that out. I go to the eye doctor every year and they said my eyes are in great condition. I am also in really good health.
  • [ – ] opaxel1967 reply Happy Birthday and many returns in better health !! My my , you had a bad time of it for sure .. I watched your video as I also have several screws in my hip . they would not replace it .. as I was to young ( at 66 ) .. crazy .. however , I was in and out within a week , if on 2 crutches at first , also I had to give myself the needle every day , something to do about infections etc .. forgot .. it wasn't pleasant at first but I was out of hospital and at home .. I can fully understand the hell you went through , with not being able to do a lot of things , like washing , toilet and all the rest .. but hey , chin up !! its going to get better and better , believe me , I am now 70 and can do everything again like before my accident .. its something to tell your kids about one day !!!
    • [ – ] JessicaMartwin parent reply Thanks! Thank you for sharing! Hip surgery and injuries are the worst! Well, I think so. It is emotionally draining when you're in so much pain and unable to do the things you love! It is hard to find pleasure in things. Now that I am almost back to 100% I feel so much better.
  • BentoMomma reply expand (possible spam) I have to have hip surgery at some point in the near future. No displasia for me though, just a cartilage tear, but I can totally understand on the pain factor.
  • lordcooler reply i can tell by looking at your eye you have health problems still. this video will help you understand what i am talking about. and this video will tell you what you need to do to cure your self good luck
