Hello. My Wife had a c-section 8 months ago with the birth of our first child. Since then she has been having serious problems with her one leg which has gotten progressively worse to the point now that when she stands up she has to wait for up to 5 minutes sometimes for what she calls "her leg to click in" before she can work during which time she is in extreme pain and even after it has clicked she still cant walk properlly. At first it used to just be numbnesss in the leg and after a step or two would go away. We have been to physiotherapists and chyropractors and this has not solved the problem so we are not sure what is the next step. It is clear that our general GP is not helping and feel we need to see a specialist and have X-Rays taken but just what sort of specialist do we see. Thanks Mark
An ortho that specializes in hip and pelvic issues. She might have hip displasia, or cracked pelvis, etc. If its that bad, go to the Er, they will run x-rays and hive you a list of ortho docs to follow up with. Good luck! :-)
