I could not understand what had happened to my body.
Perhaps for this reason, I broke into tears upon seeing my coach. As he was concerned about my condition, he referred me to a world-renowned sports medicine surgeon at Stanford Hospital. Safron ran several exams and offered me to undergo hip surgery.
Alas, the pain was unbearable, which is why I was forced to scurry off the track and fell down.
I had never experienced the agony of such magnitude before. I was informed that I had pulled my right hip flexor and was lucky that it was not a tear.
Even after my surgery, I was not willing to give up.
On March 27, 2015, I ran in my first high school track meet which was after about a year and a half.
I was happy to finish the race without any pain, but I could neither break a track record nor improve my personal record.
Nonetheless, I was satisfied with my accomplishment.
I felt so helpless and could not grasp why I was unable to run. On October 17, 2014, I had to undergo right hip arthroscopic capsular plication surgery.
It was a painful experience after which I was asked to take rest for six months.
