Re: 3 wks post RFA

Hi, Mia. I'm so sorry you're in so much pain. My RSD is in my left leg, too, so I can only use my right one, like you. I do have an implant in my spine. I haven't suffered from much back/hip pain, but the stress on my right foot has caused the RSD to spread to that foot now, too (although I can still use it, at least for now). Not sure if this makes a difference (or if you're already doing this), but I use a walker with a seat on it. I put a pillow on the seat and then put the "bad knee" on it and use my right leg to push the walker. The knee takes some of the pressure off my right leg and keeps my hips/back relatively straight while walking. Of course, this is not medical advice, just my experience.
