Misunderstood and undiagnosed groin pain caused deep psychological corrosion

Misunderstood and undiagnosed groin pain caused deep psychological corrosion is a sad and not infrequent tale; doctors tend to blame the patient when it's they who don't understand what's happening.

I realize that this is not a question, but as someone who has suffered from hip, leg, and groin pain for many years your pages are reassuring that I was not insane. I had been diagnosed and treated by a brilliant chiropractor back in the early eighties, but since his passing have never found anyone as perceptive and clear until finding your pages.

Unfortunately, I have lost my battle and will be getting a hip replacement in two weeks, but to know that all the times doctors did not understand and through in my endless search to find someone as smart as my chiropractor from many years ago there is someone out there who can succinctly and clearly explain the years of symptoms and pain.

To have one's pain marginalized or misunderstood leads to avoiding behavior, which in my case led to deep corrosion. Your pages should be required reading for all who feel unheard. Thank you.

Beautifully written, Karla, and I thank you. Actually it's doctors in the field who should be reading this.

Hip surgery is normally very successful these days; follow the surgeon's instructions to the letter.

Let me know in a couple months how the op went.
