Yes, i kinda DID start this thread prob'ly JUST as you began the snowmobile schlep-
At present, my "leg" area is hurting....oftimes on the outside of my thigh(this is the leg w/the newly-installed hip)and lately, in my GROIN(which worries me, as that is near the area which hurt prior to my surgery)....
I am scheduled to see my surgeon this Thurs., and plan to speak to him about THAT, plus balance issues(only sometimes-)and morning pain and stiffness.I am worried that he will just RX exercises for me-one of which HURT the other leg when i did it(you know, the one where you tie a long rubber-type band to a stationery object and then pull your leg out to the side--the band provides resistance)....when i might POSSIBLY benefit by a well-aimed shot of SomethingOrOther....
Or would it be another round of Voltaren? I do not mind that all that much, but wonder if i will have to be on it almost indefinitely to "feel good."
I wanted you, if you would be so good as, to help me crystalize what i ask the Surgeon, so i don't go on and on as, i suspect, i am doing to YOU!!!
So-:(1)Your opinion as to what you think of my fears and concerns and (2)How you think i should put 'em to the doc.
I like working w/YOU, too-which is why i waited so long.I hope your back is OK!!!
