My masseuse pulled my leg to reposition my sacroiliac. I have a lot of low back and pain few inches above my intergluteal cleft. What did she do?

My masseuse pulled my leg to reposition my sacroiliac. I have a lot of low back and pain few inches above my intergluteal cleft. What did she do?

Injured you!: It is difficult to determine exactly what the injury was, but the pain indicates that the "repositioning" was not done correctly. Rest and applying ice to the painful area 15-20 minutes every couple hours, and taking Aleve (naproxen) or Advil should be helpful. Depending upon the level of pain and/or the time to recover you may need to see a physician. Bottom line: don't allow masseuse to make adjustments ...Read more

Sutures from Lumbar CSF Leak Repair removed yesterday...it's ~2" long & bottom goes into top of gluteal cleft. Base looks like it's opening despite Steri Strips & Butterfly Closures. What can I do?

You should call your: Surgeon for guidance but sometimes a wound can spread in spite of that type of closure if there is strain on the wound. As long as there is no drainage or reddening of the wound or any increasing pain, fevers, chills or sweats-it should be ok but check with your surgeon just to make sure. ...Read more

Does my double cleft palate have anything to do with the following problems I have always had problems speaking loud enough without getting out of breath. I'm prone to ear aches, and people ask me to repeat myself so much that I seldom talk to anyone outs

Does my double cleft palate have anything to do with the following problems I have always had problems speaking loud enough without getting out of breath. I'm prone to ear aches, and people ask me to repeat myself so much that I seldom talk to anyone outs

All: All of the problems you mentioned are related to your clefts. If you palate has not been repaired completely, you will have communication between your mouth and your nose. The escape of air will explain why speaking will get you out of breath. It also makes your speech sound nasal and hard to understand. There are tubes that vent the middle ear to the back of the throat. The cleft alters the muscles that prevent back flow into those tubes leading to frequent ear infections. The opening in your palate will allow whatever is in your mouth to leak out of your nose.
The cleft causes a defect of the bone at the very back of your palate will fail to support the soft tissue allowing it to hang down and cause you to choke.
The good news is that all of these problems can be improved with treatment. ...Read more
