I’ve been diagnosed with postpartum symphysis pubis dysfunction and osteitis pubis, boy is that a mouthful! And trust me, it’s as bad as it sounds. Basically I have too much movement in my pelvis from being pregnant, specifically my pubic bone region. I can literally hear and feel it popping and shifting hundreds of times a day.
The instability in my pelvis has caused a bone condition called osteitis pubis, which is inflammation of the pubic symphysis joint and I am left with bone damage, erosion, and bone cysts on my pubic bone. This has been a very painful condition for me for the last 2 years and has left me disabled recently. I need to get my life back, my kids and my husband need me. I’m having major surgery on my pelvis on May 14th, 2015, fusion of my pubic symphysis with a bone graft from my hip. This is a rare surgery so please cross your fingers it’s successful!!!
