I notice that the groin pain discussion is still going full swing.
I wrote on here about seven months back about my groin pain.
I would like to update you.
I ended up going to the hospital to see a specialist as I too was in such severe pain in my right groin and with further pain in my hip, leg and I also had several crumbling vetabraes.
The specialist gave me xrays and an M.R.I. scan and then told me that I had problems with the nerve in the groin which was causing the pain.
I was admitted into hospital and was given three courses of cortisone injections and I also had traction for five days, which did not help at all. I was still in agony and had to go back to the specialist, who then said that it was still the nerve and that I needed an operation.
I then had an appointment to go to see the surgeon to have the operation on the nerve. When I went to see him, he said that it was not the nerve at all that was causing the pain. ( By now I am getting really annoyed ).
I then went back again to the specialist and was sent for more xrays and I was then told that the pain is due to my hip needing replaced. She also informed me that I have Osteo Arthritis, which is very bad and that too is causing a lot of pain.
So the outcome so far is that I now have to see another surgeon on the 13th September to be examined to go into hospital to have a hip replacement.
I live in France and France is suppose to have some of the worlds top specialists and hospitals, well I can assure you that as I have had so much messing about with them, they dont seem to know what they are doing, that I am very disappointed.
But I will persevere and hope that this time they have it right.
So please wish me luck and hope that they have it right this time.
