I had a l4/l5 microdiscectomy 6 months ago which relieved my sciatic problem in my left leg. I was doing very well for the most part, returning to work 6 weeks after surgery. I was very careful with the no twisting bending and lifting until my surgeon gave me the okay. When he released me i went to the driving range and took some very easy swings with my pitchung wedge and felt great. A couple of days later I started experiencing a stabbing pain in my groin when going from a sitting position to a standing position. The baffling thing about it is it only happens about half the time. I am also feeling like my hip/groin area is not as strong as it should be. I have been doing a lot of stretching exercises and core exercises, as well as the elliptical machine with no pain. The pain in the groin feels like something is being pinched and subsides after a few steps. My PT believes it is the psoas muscle and have been stretching that for a month. Is it possible a nerve has moved and is being pinched when going from a seated to standing position? Would a nerve being pinched make my hip/ groin area feel week? I was wonder if anyone else has experienced something like this and could relate their experience. I am getting frustrated as I have Disney trip planned in about a month and all that walking has me concerned.
