Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Put on crutches due to psoas tendonitis
« on: December 08, 2010, 05:21:06 PM »
I am 4 weeks post-op and posted last week that I've been having groin pain, and lower back/glute pain, etc.  After resting, icing and taking anti-inflammatories like it's my job, I went back to the OS today and saw a PA.  She diagnosed psoas tendonitis.  I am now off the cane and on crutches for the next week.  I also will be going to PT 3X week for the next 6 weeks.  I was planning on returning to work on Monday at 5 weeks post-op and she said "absolutely not!"  She wants me out of work for another 3 to 4 weeks.  I'm really bummed about it...I'm out of sick time, bored to tears, and discouraged by this pain.  I did have an x-ray this morning and she said she thinks everything looks good...there is one spot on my x-ray she wants to discuss with the surgeon.  It's just under the ball and she thinks it's nothing but possibly a difference in the angles that the x-rays were taken compared to immediatley post-op.  She doesn't think it's a fracture or anything because I am pain free when I'm passive.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she's right...a fracture is my biggest nightmare.

Bottom line is that she said my part time job for the next several weeks is to go to PT, ice, and stay out of work.  I'm really hoping that a few months down the road I'll be pain free and looking back at this as just another bump in the resurfacing road.

Hi, Renee, six weeks out I am still on two crutches until further notice.  In my case it was not only the Iliopsoas, Rectus Femoris and Piriformis, but also rebuilding bone density.  I took for granted this surgery - it is major and my patience is being challenged, as it is yours.  I see the doctor in early January and hopefully by then I will be able to go into a cane...

Hang in there, from what I have seen in this website, there is hope for recovery, healing and a new lifestyle!
