Went in today for a PT evaluation for voc rehab. I want to go back to work. I am bored! But I'm afraid decause I still have pain in my left hip and it is getting worse. The back surgery that I had was great, I no longer have all that pain in my legs any more. I thought that it might be the hardware that they put in. But then I started reading about the sacroiliac joint in here and begain wondering if it could be that joint. I've been going to PT some place else now for a few months, when I asked if it could be my sacroiliac joint causing my pain, they said it could be anything, it could be anything from scar tissue to hardware rejection to another part in my back its all tied in together....bummmer! There wasn't amy more that thay could do for me and discharged me, because insurance ran out. I could keep going but I would have to pay out of pocket! Who could aford that?!! Not me!!! So when I went in today for my PT evaluation for voc rehab. I told them that I was worried about my left hip hurting so bad, my back wasn't hurting so much, it was my hip.
Before I could ask if it could be my sacroiliac joint. she said, (get this!) it's probably your sacroiliac joint.
It is common with the kind of back pain and surgery that I had.
She put me on the table poked and prodded, did this and that, about killed me! then said its not your back or the surgery that you had, its your sacroiliac joint!
Boy! I went all this time with all this pain,and thought that there was nothing that could be done. Boy! does that ever piss me off!!
