Final meeting with OS yesterday. All good with mechanics of the op but he had no explanation of the bilateral pain in bum, hamstrings, calves plus lower back that I am still experiencing. Suggested polymyalgia rheumatica (!) and gave me a note for my GP for a blood test. Went to PT appt straight afterwards, a bit reluctantly having read Josephine's advice and the experience of others but persuaded by my family. She had me doing bridges, sideways extensions and moving from sit to stand without using my arms. I was completely wrecked in the afternoon and still feel in pain and very depressed this morning. I really don't think I want any more of this but family keep nagging me to 'work through the pain' . I know they have my best interests at heart but I am at the end of my tether dealing with the pain of all this. Suggestions welcome!
