Tore gluteus medius muscles 3 years ago. Keep having flare ups of pain that hurts all way down leg  & thru to pelvis. Been to doc twice.

Buttock pain: Two things come to mind immediately.

The level of atrophy will be modest but will be dependent on a number of factors including genetics. Anecdotal reports are that ingesting more protein/supplements may decrease the level of atrophy. ...Read more
