I slipped and fell several times landing on my backside. Twice on the steps (4). However after my first pregnancy when I was 19, I began having problems with my lower back and hips. Several years ago, during a gynecological surgery, my hips were injured. Probably from the position my legs were forced into todo the vaginal surgery. No one admits it, but the hip pain during my recovery was worse than the surgery.
