“I had some abdominal surgery a few years ago and woke up with extreme back pain. It was a complete mystery how it happened and it still is. The surgeon was a beloved guy and the result was that I had to fly somewhere to get a diagnosis.
All we know is that something happened in surgery, and all my pelvic ligaments gave out. Because of that, I have a tear on my L5 disc and lumbar instability, too. The doctors are now shooting PRP in various pelvic ligaments. I fly to Northern Virginia for treatments from my home in Jacksonville every five weeks. I just returned from my fifth treatment and, slowly but surely, it’s working.
They said we needed to stabilize my pelvis first, because it’s all connected down there. I never knew what the sacroiliac joint or iliac bone was, but I do now.
This is not as easy as a knee or shoulder, but they are wonderful doctors, and I love them.
I like to walk and ride my bike. We live near the ocean here in Florida and I’m a big beach walker, which I haven’t been able to do. We also like to travel a lot, and this frustrates me to no end being unable to travel without pain. I can’t wait to get better and get back to the things I love to do.”
