I am 11 weeks post-op. Most of my problems occur at night while I am trying to sleep. There is a deep pain in my lower back and hip region. It at times generates into my upper front thighs. It is terrible! It takes my breath away and I have to have my husband help me out of bed. Even the method of rolling out of bed doesn't work.
The NS's PA is claiming that it is muscular. I am taking Soma before bed, as well as pennsaid (they have also tried flector patches and hydrocodone) nothing is working for this deep pain. I am at such a loss and I do not know what to do anymore.
I haven't been able to see my NS since he cut into me. It is always his PA's. The NS is always in surgery or out of the office. I am in PT 3x weekly for an hour each time. I almost feel like I need a whole new team of Dr's, but that just seems so unfair to have to explain myself to a whole new team of Dr's.
Does anyone else have this extreme deep pain? I also have the popping noise, which sounds like a screw is popping when I move my legs certain ways.
