8 weeks post op and 1kg down

Sign in to follow this  


Taking my grand total to 18kg! Saw the dietician today and she was very pleased as to how I am progressing. Will be seeing her next in December, 6 months post op.

I went to see my GP yesterday with regards to my back and he seems to think I sprained it, so prescribed me anti-inflammatories and pain relief. My uncle suggested I see a chiro, so I went to the one he sees today and he tells me that I have a 1cm leg length discrepancy and he's surprised I haven't had issues earlier. I told him I get these pains once in a while, but not to the severity of this one, which has gone into my legs and it's painful to walk. He said that I have a pelvic tilt and that this can be fixed. I'm going to see him again tomorrow.

Who'd have thunk?! I had a feeling I may have but dismissed it. I've noticed that if I wear pants or jeans that are a tad too long, the hem on the right side tends to drag along the ground.

At least this can be fixed.

Its very common to have one leg longer / pelvic tilt.

The pain in your leg ( if it feels like a 'line' or thread) is probably a pinched sciatic nerve.

Chiro is brilliant for releasing the trapped nerve but you also will get a lot of benefity from a remedial massage every month or so, to keep the muscle from cramping again

I think I'll keep going to see him. Well need to see him tonight for another adjustment, but I might keep this ongoing as sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day with shit posture isn't helping.
