Glad to hear you can start the path to healing! I'm sure getting bad feedback over the years must have been frustrating.
Conclusion: Boston is the greatest place ever, eh?
ha, Boston probably is the greatest place ever ...
It's always a relief to get a *diagnosis,* even if it's dire, because then you can DO something about the problem. It's got to be wonderful to finally know what's going on. First step to complete healing! Best of luck to you. :-)
I'm still just blown away on how "back burner" I've been treated here in Vermont... "Oh we cater to the USA Olympic alpine ski and snowboard team! We're professionals! But yeah you're too young to have this kind of issue"
But even with this short meeting, we were able to figure out: What is causing the pain, what the first pre-operation steps are, what the time-frame will look like, and even a training/strengthening plan.
Doesn't seem that hard of a thing to think of...
But then again, can't make money off of patient visits if the patient *actually* gets healed and doesn't have to see you every 6-8 weeks.................#JustSaying
I've always been a proponent of preemptive amputation.
Awesome. I'll be interested to follow what they put you to work on, had a few illiopsoas issues myself, and can't say I've gotten then all figured out yet. Good for you for continuing to seek answers and not letting people tell you you're crazy!
