Ok people, if you are reading this and need to talk to someone about the horrendous diagnosis you received called Osteitis Pubis or Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction, I just started a forum with gals who all have these issues so we can help and talk it out. Please email me to be invited into the forum firstname.lastname@example.org. I so wish I had this 2 years ago when I felt like I was a lone soldier trying to get a handle on facing a surgery to fuse my pubic symphysis with metal plates and NOBODY had ever heard of it.
So my latest update is amazing!!! I’m running 4 miles PAIN FREE and I keep inching up a little more every time 🙂 I’m cycling, but no more than 1 1/2 hours as SI joint gets pissed off. I’m seriously ok with that tho, who knew I’d be cycling again!? Plus I just signed up for a swim meet! I’m really feeling great and I’m kinda back to normal. Sure, some days really suck and my back hurts from chasing the kids around and doing yard work or just standing for long periods. However, that stretch/exercise thing I do most nights with my hubby Jim has been a saving grace for me. He literally pops my pelvis back into place and I’m good for another 24 hours, it’s so strange but I don’t care. IT WORKS!
Thank you again to everyone who has been so supportive of me and my family over the past few years dealing with this. You all know who you are and you rock.
I’m so happy that this is yet another good blog post and not one of my scary OH MY GOSH I’M DISABLED posts. There’s hope!
