I had bladder lift surgery a few years ago and have had chronic pain in my low back and deep in my left hip ever since. The GYN sent me to physical therapy. I've had PT a couple of rounds since, which helped as long as I went, Also been to a back specialist who found nothing to indicate the pain is coming from my spine or hip joint.Chiropractic helps but more from the massage than the manipulation. I don't know what to try next.
It sounds like this might be a complication from your surgery. You need to tell your surgeon that you are still experiencing these problems and ask if they can be related to your surgery. I also had bladder lift surgery and do not have these problems. If your doctor doesn't give you an answer that your satisfied with find a urogynecologist with experience in prolapse surgery for a second opinion. Sometimes there are problems with the mesh if it was used that need to be ruled out in your case. I am glad to hear that pt helps, but you need to find the cause since your having recurring problems. Good luck!
