BACK FROM THE ORTHOPEDIC DOCTOR
I had my appointment today with Dr. Slater..he took another x-ray and it showed that I do have arthritis in my hip. After reviewing the MRI of my back, he thinks that is what is causing my pain. Next Thursday, I will receive my first lumbar epidural steroid injection. He said that I may need a series of three injections. He said this will also tell if all the pain is coming from my back. I will continue going to PT three times a week. Hope the injections will do the trick!
