I received the results of my MRI scan today. My sacroiliac joint is fine, prob the 6 years of therapies have fixed it, boom boom! OR there was never anything wrong with it as I suspected!! Hmmmm, however the surgeon is correct again and there is a problem with my hamstrings. The MRI was not clear enough to say why, other than that there appears to be oedema (I knew my growing ass after this hip arthroscopy wasn't all down to chocolate!!) and inflammation, which indicates something, though unsure what yet. The surgeon is, I understand, going to arrange an ultra sound for a clearer picture of the situation. I look forward to getting the hamstrings resolved.
There must be improvement on my operated side as I would normally feel considerable pain despite the medication and I am still feeling pain in my "good" hip, which as you know isn't really good, so this kind of pain easily breaks through medications and isn't causing much pain on my operated side.
Also I have been able to sleep on my front twice, only for half an hour at a time, but that's a first in 6 yrs and also I can open my legs to equal distance now after the hip flexor exercises retrained my muscles.
I DO NOT think I am out of the woods yet at all, I scarcely dare post this in case I jinx myself! But I think these are positive signs, that may become a trend, that may become a recovery!!
My good side is very symptomatic still, I think it may have eased a little with the steroid, but right now its pinching the hell out of my groin and giving me a pain in the bum cheek!
I am religiously doing my bridge exercise, all my hip exercises and one with a theraband. I am stretching my psoas hanging one leg off the bed and lightly stretching my hamstrings. I do this particular set of exercises as they really feel to help. And I aim to start aqua stuff within days, as I really felt such benefit on holiday from doing these.
The house officially goes on the market this afternoon so bye bye stairs (bit premature in this market!) but I will miss the house as its JUST how I want it, but I will not miss 30 stairs from top to bottom!
