About 5 weeks ago I thought I had slipped a disc in my back but turns out it was the Sacro-iliac joint. This happens when the ligaments in the Pelvis are weakened. My physio said this was probably caused by my lap a year ago what with Endo tissue being extracted from some of the muscles in my pelvis. After the lap, it took me a long while to feel comfortable walking at a normal pace but apparently I put too much weight into one side (this could have also been pre-lap pain) and its put my pelvis out of alignment! Hence one Saturday leaning over to pick up a book I was stuck in one position for 3 hours
Have any of you ladies also suffered this? The pain at first was horrific exactly like a slipped disc. Luckily I'm getting much better but it got me thinking that perhaps after any kind of abdominal surgery patients like us should be given physic to build up our pelvic muscles up or if some of you are pre-lap then perhaps back/pelvic pain might also be because of the sacroiliac joint? Hormones have a lot to do with the elasticity of muscles and depending where we are in our cycles, the ligaments can be more slack. Might be worth bringing up with your GP or consultant maybe?
