    Surgery

I have arthritis all over but my major problem is a tendon tear in my right hip, surgery failed and has made it worse. It has left me with a very painful limp. It is excruciating to get up from a sitting position, it hurts all the way around my pelvis and down toward my knees. I have a Surgeon willing to do a pain stimulater trial but my insurance has denied it and I cannot find out why. I can't seem to find a Dr. Who will treat this problem. I can not walk more than a few yards without terrible pain and being so out of breath I'm gasping. My regular Dr. Is lovely, she has given me Pain medication for arthritis but it doesn't touch this problem. I also have fibro which is maddening.
