I'm new here. I had a fusion from L-4 to S-1 in 2006. Last night I got my foot stuck on something and twisted my whole left leg and hip as I fell. I felt a pop and thought I dislocated my hip. I couldn't move without screaming in pain. I have a high tolerance to pain and this was as bad as after my back surgery.
Well, the ER dr. said I didn't dislocate anything or break anything. They did do an x-ray and ct scan. I was sent home with meds and a presc. for an mri (I'll get those results tomorrow). I can somewhat walk, can't bend my leg without shooting pain in the back of my thigh and butt cheek. If I tore a muscle or something... would that show in an mri? what type of damage could they find (that they couldn't with the x-ray and ct) with the MRI? I am so scared this is going to turn into a surgery situation.
thanks for listening and any responses
