Hi @zauberflöte You are correct in thinking that I have psoas tendinitis diagnosed by ultrasound in January and I have waited 5 months for a cortisone injection for which I have just received an appointment for the 12th June.I had a course of physio which consisted of exercise only ( no massage ) and it certainly improved things but just like you I found that the pain returned when I increased activity levels by just getting on with my life.I also believe that it is something I will just have to live with now but I need to exercise to keep up the strength and flexibility in the hip.My left hip is also deteriorating which is not helping.I rarely take painkillers now just a couple of paracetamol when I have to and don't take anti inflammatories any more. I am generally ok when resting.I should also mention that I didn't have an anterior.@Littlejem I am also trying to lose the post-op weight...we can give up sweets together
@Kim22 your tendonitis is worse than mine, or I am medicating harder than you are. I can't tell you the names, but it is all along the front of the groin. As I posted (on my own thread maybe?), when I went for PT at about 6 months, she beat up on my (anterior) scar to get rid of the adhesions, which she said were located exactly where they would cause tendonitis a few inches towards crotch. There is more than one spot, but she cleared everything up with massage-- even worked on the other side as a bonus!-- and all was well for several weeks. Then I upped my activity level drastically and it started coming back again. I expect it's with me to stay.
Where is yours-- do I remember psoas? Have you had that injection yet, and if so how is it working? I want for all of us to have our good lives back, you know?
@ByGosh thinking of you every single day-- we are making a mess of your porch but I promise we will clean up (couldn't resist the new smiley, we will plow your porch clear of crumbs!)
Hi @zauberflöte, Nice to see you around again.Wedding prep-- I really only have to find something to wear (bit of a panic now, I've tried two things that didn't work out...) and throw the rehearsal party, which will be a very casual cookout in our back yard.
