    Anyway, I'm a scientist, so you probably don't want to talk to me.

    Congrats on the job, Nanette. Will you be in academia?

    Congratulations on your job! That is great news. Hopefully you'll have access to a decent gym or enough shekels to build one at home for yourself.

    Thanks! Technically it's a postdoctoral position, with the possibility of becoming a staff scientist position. Pending funding (and assuming I don't mess it up), of course.

    It's not an assistant professorship, nor do I want it to be. I'm real excited I get to keep working with magnets.

    Pfft, in the Bay Area? I need to be making 3-4 times what I will be making to afford a home gym. I can get membership at the uni gym for about $50/month, not terrible considering many gyms are $100+/month. I could also join some weightlifting gym, pending hip situation.

    Hip updates after meeting with specialist


    1) Since I'm doing pretty well (recovering from pain, slowly incorporating stuff back in) with current treatment, no need for surgery (yet)

    2) Depending on what the cause of the bone marrow edema(s) is, it may take months or even years to heal. It could be some kinda trauma or early sign of avascular necrosis.

    3) hip specialist is inclined to disagree with the radiologist. Thinks I have a slight FAI, CAM type. Very slight. Could be the cause of the tear, could also not be.

    4) my tear is very minor. Possible that I have a matching one on the other side based on clinical exam. But it's not giving me any problems so whatever.

    5) follow up MRI without contrast for the bone edema in 6 weeks to see if it's improved. --> scheduled for June 30

    6) basically do whatever I want as long as it doesn't hurt.

    Sweet magnet job, doc!

    I'm curious if you have an opinion about magnet therapy as a healing aid (I know it's not your field).

    I've never tried it but became a cautious believer in acupuncture in dealing with chronic migraine along the way. Perhaps it's bullshit placebo, perhaps difficult to measure.

    Magnet therapy in healing? Sounds like voodoo magic to me. I've never even heard of it.

    PS: not a doctor yet! June 16th is the day my degree is awarded.

    BW: 62.3 kg

    After my ortho appointment, my leg has been feeling kinda weird. A bit tingly. Is this just what life will be like from now on? Some days, I just get these tingly feelings in my leg, and they resolve on their own.

    (Clean +) Front Squat
    2 x 5 x 45
    5 x 65
    5 x 75
    3 x 5 x 90
    A bit of a hip shift to the right. Need to think about moving to the left, because what feels "straight down" is shifted. Might try to FS in front of a mirror for a few sessions.

    Competition Bench
    1 x 122 @ 6
    1 x 127 @ 7/5
    1 x 130 @ 9* comp. bench PR --> e1RM = 136
    2 x 4 x 107 @ 9, 9

    Pin Bench (chest-level)
    1 x 105 @ 6
    1 x 115 @ 7.5
    3 x 107 @ 9
    3 x 102 @ 9
    3 x 100 @ 9

    Pull-Ups: 30 total
    8* PR, 4, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3

    Ugh, training scheduling is all messed up from my trip and MRI days. Day 4 of this week will just have to be Sunday and I'll try to get back on track next week.

    So are you slightly more optimistic about the hip now?
    I don't know what half of those medical terms mean, but as long as you don't need surgery thats good, right?

    Your bench is coming along nicely!

    Thanks Jan! I am pleased i don't need surgery. And pleased with my bench progress.

    For those of you who are following along but don't speak jargon, I've provided a translation:

    3T MRI arthrogram with Gad contrast = MRI scan done with 3T magnet, Gadolinium contrast agent to make the labrum light up on the scan. Normally it is difficult to see the difference between a torn labrum and surrounding tissues because they have similar contrast without Gad.

    Partial-thickness articular surface tear of the anterior superior labrum, extending from the base of the labrum to the apex = small, incomplete tear of the labrum, in the front and top side, starting at the base and extending up to the top

    Short segment detachment of the anterior superior labrum = labrum is partially detached in the front, at the top

    The rest of the labrum is intact = self-explanatory

    Three discrete osteochondral injuries of the femoral head = three separate small injuries in the cartilage around my femur

    with mild underlying marrow edema = with bone bruises underneath the cartilage

    FAI = femoroacetabular impingement, where a bony lesion gives that ball and socket an irregular shape

    CAM-type = the head of the femur is not perfectly round and may grind against the hip socket, wearing away the labrum

    The MRI without contrast, scheduled for June 30, is to check the healing progress of the bone bruising. Bone bruises can be seen via plain old MRI (but not x-ray), no need for special injections. We hope it appears to be smaller in 6 weeks.

    Everything is rushed because I am moving to Berkeley sometime in July (we settled on August 1st start date). Fortunately, my UC SHIP student insurance is good through the end of September. New job will provide insurance too, but I bet it's not as good as the student one. I need to get new glasses, teeth cleaned, etc before I move!
