Scared for doctors appointment

OK so I'm 13, and for the past few weeks I've had soo much pain when moving from a sitting to standing position, and also when I sit normally. I finally told my parents because the pain was so bad, and I now have a doctors appointment.

However, I'm very scared because I don't know what they're going to do. I'm also a little embarrassed saying that I'm going to the doctor for my butt. I really hope it's something that they can fix easily because I don't want to have to get surgery. I also don't want to have to put up with this pain for much longer.

I found this site and now I feel a little better knowing that other people are going through the same thing.

My name's Katie. I was the one who didn't have a name before.

I went to the doctors and now I have to go get x-rays, and then most likely go to an orthopedic doctor. Hopefully they'll find something they can fix and this pain will go away soon.
