Break out the Band-Aids! I spoke too soon. My leg pain is coming back. It is just the most bizarre thing! Now the entire leg is involved, from buttock/hip to foot. Sitting for longer than 5 minutes is painful, and driving a car is excruciating (it's my right leg, so pressing on the brakes or gas pedal makes things worse.) I now drive with my body twisted so that my weight is on my left hip and butt, to relieve pressure on the bad leg. I look weird, but hey, it works! Sort of.
I've lost 12 pounds, and have tons more to lose, but I'm sure that losing weight will help. Or at least keep things from getting worse. Now I have to get up and walk around some more. Sayonara!
