    After a Fall

    I fell in the bathroom about 3 weeks ago and have a pain over my left buttock which gets worse after I walk about a 100 feet.Things also get worse when I stand for a while and the pain extends across the lower back. The GP and physical therapist ,after moving the leg around, say they think it is a soft tissue injury and can take several months to heal. If it doesn't, then get an MRI etc. Does that sound reasonable? Thanks,

    Yes but a quick x ray could help you accept it. soft tissue injuries can take months to heal. I had a high ankle sprain that took 6months before any movement didn't hurt.
