Finally went in and saw my Dr. It was my regular visit but I needed to talk to him. Had not seen him since I fell last month. I saw the N.P. twice. We discussed my leg, groin pain and he ordered pelvic and hip x-ray. Had it yesterday. Will take a week to get the results. I told him how rough it had been and that I had been eating everything unhealthy. Told him I had gained almost 20 pounds and felt lousy. He was not very happy. Discussed what was going on in my life with my sister. We both know I have to lose the weight. So I told him I would go back on my lo carb program and stop the junk food. Which I already had started last week.
I have been hurting with leg, groin and knee pain since I fell. Working with physical therapy but not much improvement with the leg/groin pain. Having severe pain every time I would lift my leg off the floor. Weight on leg did not cause pain. Unable to drive because I couldn't lift my leg up enough to get it in the car. The N.P. had taken me off ibuprofen, and gave me Mobic. Only problem, she only wrote script for 10 days. Said that it should be enough also had 5 Tramadol. Well that just didn't cover the pain for a month. So the Dr. reordered the Mobic and Tramadol for a month. No ibuprofen. Doesn't make sense to me but I will try it. Gosh I really thought Ibuprofen was better than taking the tramadol and Mobic. Guess not. Hoe this works. I hope the x-ray does not show a fracture, I just don't need that right now.
