I had a salpingo oophorectomy on June 13, 2006 due to endometriosis. My right ovary and fallopian tube were removed and a wedge section was taken of my left ovary. I have a cut, like a c-section, from hip bone to hipe bone.

Since this surgery, I have had severe nerve pain in my leg and back (sciatic). Physical therapy has allowed me to walk, but the pain persists. No doctor (ObGYN, Neurologist, Physical Therapist, etc.) can figure out why I still have pain. The best suggestion made by the PT was that my pelvic bone had shifted.

There is no explanation, and my movement is limited. Muscles have been popped, I continue my PT exercises, but the pain is continuing. No medications are being taken. HELP!

Any ideas what has happened? (Unable to have MRI to verify slipped disk, however, pain seems to be concentrated in lower back and legs, range of movement is practically non-existent, unable to bend at the waste).
