i am amazed to know that there still might be a problem to be addressed. i hope not via another operation (i have had enough).
my pt, along with a medical masseuse and craniosacral specialist, has told me that my sacrum twisted clockwise. my left leg is the one with issues just as my left side is the one still in pain.
when i think about the possible chain of events, i remember having pain in the left hemipelvis once in 2001 and again in 2002. i saw a ur since the pain radiated in to the testicle. they said i was fine, and i went ahead doing dangerous sports. then the accident happened. the left side was the one that really hurt. it advanced to both sides over the next couple of monhts. post-op, i feel someone better, but the left side is still bugging me. when i contract my abdominals, my left side buldges a bit more (in an out-of-shape, rounded kind of way) than the right. i also have a lump just above and one below the inguinal tendon. the bottom one is painful to touch but only sometimes. there feels like there is a vienna sausage on the left side that i can move around a bit, i just though that was the psoas, and i have seen so many docs that i figured i was in good hands. but the problem of pain remains. stretching of the psoas sometimes makes things worse.
i am afraid that i tore some of these muscles in the iliopsoas and neighbors and they were never discovered. would a ct scan show those tears? i did have one just after the accident but it showed nothing. never had a pelvic mri cause the docs said it wasn't necessary and the insurance company rejected the requests from 2 docs that ordered the mri.
this is complicated. i have no idea what to do. my sacrum is apparently back in order after a few adjustments via craniosacral manipulation. but who knows how long it will stay in place and what i can do for exercise that won't knock it out again.
lt, if you would not mind, i would greatly appreciate if you could email me that article on the sh that you have. this is going to drive me nuts if i don't regain my ability to bend down without pain let alone get back into kayaking whitewater.
would an mri or ct show the torn muscles?
