Ouch!: I am so sorry this happened - it is a rare complication, but as you well know, is very painful. Unfortunately, if you are still having symptoms 15 months out, it is likely this will be a chronic problem, including with future pregnancies.It's not like you can easily put your pelvis in a cast and let it heal. Physical therapy may help, as well as biofeedback techniques to try and put mind over pain.
