Glad everything worked out well for you. It is great to have you back also. I agree with you about the "Arthritic Hip Pain" in which you had. With the people who have PPS, and has it in the hip, would this same procedure help them out? Maybe I am cautious about procedure's, let me tell you a short story. I went to a Neurologist and he stated that I had nerve entrapment and had to be release. I went to him because of severe pain I was having in my right hand and arm. The new procedure was to wrap one's arm real tight with a elastic bandage, to get the blood out. Then they filled my arteries with novocaine and started to cut into my elbow where they stated that I had the entrapment. When the Doctor was in there, he found nothing of the sort and stated that it is from my PPS. After I was healed according to him, I was moving my boat over to the dock and felt the nerve flip right back to where it was before he operated. I myself have very painful hip pain, and the Doctor's told me that they saw nothing in there, that most likely it is my PPS in which I agreed.
I am so happy that you came out of it with some pain relief and hopefully it will continue to give you the relief for many year's to come. Some good new's of a procedure finally, all I can say is to make sure it is Arthritic Pain and not pain from PPS. I am elated for you Sally, good news for ones that have the same problem as you had. No running any races out there now, I know you are a strong lady!
