been awhile since I have been on. I am down 36lbs since May 7th. Jess is down about the same since May 13th. I have a question. Did anyone have hip pain issues? Jess is having a lot of hip pain. She was doing Zumba and at first thought that could be the issue. she took a break and the pain is still very persistant. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hip pain issues could be from a couple different things.  A quick turn or movement in zumba could be the culprit.  Try a different form of exercise temporarily and see if the hip pain goes away in a few days.  We are allowed to take Tylenol for the pain.  (No Ibupofen)   The second thing it could be for bariatric patients is that they carry their body differently as they lose weight and different until the body adjusts to the new weight.  It could cause temporary hip adjustments.

Most likely though the hip pain, if it is a new pain, may be from zumba and from moving abruptly and twisting the hips sensually. 

I take zumba classes in the wintertime every Saturday  morning, and I know from experience that there is a lot of hip twisting and turning involved.   You just had your surgery in May, so your bodies are post op.  Be careful.  Exercise but don't overdo it.  If something aches, stop and do something else.

As you lose weight, you will be able to do more....

I am leaning more towards the weight shifting. she is knocked kneed and has had 2 surgeries for her one knee. She is an active girl. she has done indoor colorguard, marching band, did some kick boxing and water aerobics all before surgery and never an issue with the hips. I think she is so use to walking a certain way with her weight that now that the weight is gone she needs to learn to walk again. I am hoping this resolves before she goes back to college and band starts up. She will NEVER give up marching band. She did take a bit of a break from Zumba and it doesnt seem to make a difference. She says she gets the pain just standing at work. Hopefully it is just an adjustment to losing weight.

Dr Holland suggested she walk straighter. i gave her some stretching excercises....time will tell i guess

thanks for responding

Dr. Holland suggested to me to stand tall and to walk straight and this has helped me with my posture and the weight reshifting.

Dena, I've had some hip issues and for me it is the shift in weight. I didn't realize how I walked prior and being heavy I overcompensated for walking.  Now that I have less weight every once in a while my hip will actually pop when I walk. I don't always have pain but it can be uncomfortable.  I'm sure it is just a compensation issue but keep an eye on it and hopefully as the weight goes down more Jess will have less issues too.

I had try this exercise it would be beneficial. Lie on your back with ur knees bent & ur feet flat on the floor, Now by using your abdominal muscles lift one foot off the floor and bring it towards u now inhale at the time you are lifting that and exhale as you come back down. Repeat this thing 4 to 5 times it will work.
This exercises can also be useful in treating Beating Patellar Tendonitis.

Doing Zumba is good for fitness. May be, there is  a pain due to sudden shock in the body. You can consult to the chiropractor, that will treat you well. Read more at Back pain treatment Manassas, VA.
