Femoral Neck Stress Fracture and a Call for Prayer

April 29, 2012 § 10 Comments

After a couple of weeks now of very limited mobility and ongoing pain in the ol’ hip bone, I have done some “research” (i.e., scoured the Internet and read a lot of forums) and am 99% sure that what is going on with me is actually a femoral neck stress fracture (FNSF).


The implications of this are kind of hard for me to even grasp right now, so I’m taking it one day at a time.

Make that an hour at a time.

I wanted to write and just ask anyone who reads this to please pray for me.  I go back to the doctor tomorrow for results of my X-rays, but FNSFs are notorious for not showing up on X-rays, which means I may need an MRI or bone scan to accurately diagnose the problem.

Thanks so much for all your support and sweetness…and thanks ahead of time for praying.

    I hope it’s not what you suspect. Wishing you all the best.

      Thanks, Charles. I’d be shocked if it’s not because of the type of pain I have. Trusting God is good regardless. Have you ever had a stress fx?

        Self-diagnosis can be tricky. And you have to hope for the best, right?

        I’ve been – knock wood – fortunate. I’ve never had a stress fracture. I dislocated my shoulder once in a road bike accident, and beyond that, this recent bout of plantar is the worst problem I’ve experienced.

        Your focus for the next while will have to be on healing. But if that’s what you focus on, it’s amazing what you can do.

        That’s so encouraging. Thanks, man.

    i am beginning now in the Name of Jesus to pray over your hip and thigh and femur and all the muscles, ligaments, joints and bones to be touched by the Lord in a miraculous way. also for your perfect peace in Christ Jesus. He has it worked out already for your hope and future Bek. trust Him all the way. blessings over you my love.

  • Jamie says:

    Totally praying for you and hoping you get a better diagnosis! Hang in there Bekah!

  • Pearson says:

    I hope that it all turns out well for you. I was you about three and a half months ago and did my fair share of ‘end of the world crying.’ It will be good to know exactly what the pain and get a certain diagnosis. It is not a fun place to be in, but from someone who has been in your shoes not long go. It does work out!
