    After suffering from severe hip pain for a couple of days I went to my doc last friday. He send me this morning to the hospital for an x - ray and guess what:

    There is a more than an inch long piece of an injection needle in there sticking in my hip bone!?
    I "knew" about it, but since it happened more than 30 years ago, I`ve forgotten all about it a long time ago.

    The doctor back then didnt say a word but about half a year later I had an x-ray where it showed. They told me to take care of it, otherwise I would get problems sooner or later. I was so young and there was no pain.........so what. :oops:

    So it took that darn thing more than 30 years to move into the skin of the bone and the pain is almost killing me. Have to wait for thursday morning to go to the hospital where they will discuss on how to take it out.

    please keep your fingers crossed
    (my Janome horizon was delivered this morning and I hardly can sit!?)

    Oh that is terrible, crossing my fingers and toes! When I first read the topic I was thinking sewing needle, and couldn't figure out how you could get that in your hip bone.

    I'm sorry you have to deal with the pain. Honestly, I chuckled at the title of this thread and wondered what kind of a quilter you are. lol Wishing a speedy removal of the offending sliver.

    The lady at the x-ray told me that the radiologist will contact my doctor by tomorrow.....he did before lunch today and I got a phonecall at 12.30 noon.
    He was all the time talking about a "sewing needle" - "not seen in 30 years of practice" and then I finally told him to stop that sewing needle talk and that it was part of an injection needle!
    I am a newbie quilter but further than into my finger I never managed to mislead a needle

    Thank you all for your good wishes, I really feel miserable.

    Oh my!
    Can't believe they didn't take care of it 30 years ago!

    Talk about sitting on pins and needles! You have been doing that for years!

    I hope it will be a simple procedure to get out!

    Praying for pain relief!

    It seems to me that the doctor who originally left the needle behind should at least cover the cost of the removal.

    Goodness, that does not sound like fun.

    Thoughts and prayers your way for a speedy and successful removal and recovery.

    Hopefully, you will be sewing again in no time.
