I have had chronic pelvic pain for 9 years secondary to a pelvic graft. I underwent surgery last summer which provided significant relief from pain. During that time I often spent days lying on the couch, but most recently spent 5 out of 12 months in the hospital with no PT. To my horror I could barely stand or ambulate when I began to recover in October. I have made some progress. My pelvic PT (hands on not exercises) is stressing exercises to relax my back and pelvic floor, as a precursor to specific strengthening exercises. At this point I can only walk for 5 minutes unaided.
Has anyone recovered from this degree of debility, and how did you overcome it. I am distraught thinking I will never be able to walk unaided again.
