The doctor who ordered the scan, specialist,, can compare and tell you what to do. If you haven't heard, make an appointment to discuss the results.
    Are you on an anti-inflammatory such as Naproxen or Ibuprofen. Might just be inflammation which lasts for quite a while after surgery.

    Hi sci-nurse,

    I have an appointment on June 12th to see the appropriate doc, it can't come soon enough!
    I have tried taking ibuprofen for like 3 days, and I'm not sure it has any effect, it seems to get slightly better for about 2-3 hours after I take it, then it goes back to being crap. I took 2 200 mg 3 times a day. so my hips, knees and spine click a lot! I get some momentary relief when I click them but then pain comes back. I think on of the muscles in my right butt cheek is also shot, as when I move it it feels very fatigued and raw, but maybe that's not much to do with the spine? although that's the initial pain that brought me to A&E!
    I guess as you say it could be inflammation, and a lot of it! does stress affect it? cause I'm definitely super stressed about this. I mean, for the first 3 months I cried every day. now I only cry 3 times a week I guess. but still, I worry a lot! all the doctors I see tell me that I need to stop worrying so much, but it's easier said than done. I think I'll drop dead one of these days..

    UPDATE: I have just seen the physiotherapist, and she thinks this is a problem of posture and muscle control. She says that I sit too wonky and stand too wonky as well, and when I move my hips don't move well. so she has given me some strange exercises to do, which have in fact flared up some of my symptoms. I feel like I was actually feeling better before doing the exercises than after, but she says that it's normal. That's all I have to report for now, I really hope she is right, as that would mean I have a much more trivial problem than initially anticipated, but who knows.

    Unless she had access to your MRI report, I don't know how she could have made that determination. Personally, I'd wait until I actually knew what my MRI showed (if anything) before embarking on a course that exacerbated my symptoms.

    I know right? the exercises had an immediate effect of making me worse, and I was seriously wondering during the session whether I should keep going. on the other hand even the doctor said to try physiotherapy. mmm. I'm not sure what to do now. this is quite confusing. and to think that I was feeling a bit better before today! we had a long sunny weekend, and laying in the sun made me feel so much better!
