Oct 10, 2016 · Organ pain from auto immune? in Autoimmune Diseases

I had upper quadrant pain for the last 9 months. Dc’d Celebrex, took Prilosec and Pepcid, added probiotic, etc. PC doctor said IBS, but symptoms didn’t fit. Finally sent me to a surgeon for an upper endoscopy. Surgeon said that he wanted a colonoscopy, too. Clean so he ordered an upper GI and pelvic CT. Insurance wouldn’t pay for the pelvic CT, so he ordered an ultrasound. Surprise, I had large cysts in each ovary, which were not there a year ago by palpitation. Surgically removed two weeks ago, I am now stomachache free. Who would have thought!

I did, and after about two years, they looked at my back. Turns out my
problems were due to lumbar stenosis. Best wishes!

May 2, 2016 · Having knee replacement: how to prepare and questions about PT in Joint Replacements

I’d recommend starting PT now if you haven’t already. Then they started PT
in the hospital, and I continued once I was released. It is tough, but the
stretching, etc, that they teach you before surgery will help with your
recovery!

Apr 2, 2016 · Intermittent pain in my legs from knees down. Unable to stand in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I am glad. I was told that an earlier neurologist should have ordered a
standing back X-Ray because that was the what was needed to see the
compression. Best wishes!!

I would consider back issues even without back pain. When standing, one can have compression of nerves that affect the lower legs.
