Dear all...I'm back again!
It's now 19 days since my SFF repair plus top and back wall repairs. The buttock pain when going to toilet is slightly better but I am pretty upset that I now how terrible pain in the top back of my right leg. This extends down several inches so it's not really buttock pain. It's the worst when I get into bed / so from standing to lying position: it feels like my muscles are ripping. Has anyone else experienced this? I am not recovering like all the hospital leaflets suggest ... I'm supposed to be doing 10 - 15 minute walks by now but I can't walk for more than a minute without pain in both buttock and leg. I'm fretting the surgeon has permanetly damaged my nerves and I stupidly read medical research stating this is possible.
I am still feeling a bearing down feeling inside - I never had that sensation before my surgery. All in all I feel pretty despondent. As there is a 20% chance of it reoccurring I'm not sure it's worth all this. I hope so much this top leg ripping pain will ease off.
