Losing weight in gluteus

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight in gluteus


Avatar n tn Who in the US is best for repair of a MRI found gluteus minimus tear? Also bursists in the same area on my left side. Problems started a year ago. I prefer a doctor on the East Coast.
Avatar m tn m not sure if not having enough protein is contributing to me not losing weight. I hear people talk about how they lose a pound a week and the such, but I've run 5 miles a day for 5 days straight for 1 month and have only lost 1-2 lbs. What am I doing wrong?!
Avatar n tn After 13 years of pain, I finally found out that I have a Gluteus medius tear and a labral tear. I have found a doc in Chicago (Dr. Domb)who does GM tears and a doc in Colorado ( Dr.Philipon) who does labral tears. Prior to this, every doctor told me I had radiated pain coming from my spine. I no longer run (30 years of running) and don't lift weighs (10 yrs ) either. I now hurts to just walk, stand. etc. I can't put weight on my right side going up steps.
1281603 tn?1283798699 To add, the injections should be administered in the gluteus medius or gluteus minimus with proper needle length and no more than 5 ml injected into the site. As an RN, I can proudly say I never discolored or damaged any bottoms giving these injections.
Avatar f tn The gluteus medius lies underneath the gluteus maximus and the gletus minimus lies underneath the gluteus medius. The piriformis starts at your sacrum and stretches out to your femur. Tie an elastic band around your ankles such as an exercise band or rubber tubing. Make sure there is resistance with your feet hip-width apart. Start with low resistance and progressively work your way up to heavier resistance. Stand with your hands on your hips and feet hip-width apart.
Avatar n tn I recently had surgery to repair a complete rupture of my Gluteus Medius Hip Tendon. Three holes were drilled in my hip bone and the tendon was located and sutured into these holes. A pig skin graft was used to help secure the sutures. Also I had a Bursectomy and a bone spur removed. I would like to hear comments from anyone else who has gone through this. How long post surgery to be pain free? How is walking and climbing stairs?
Avatar n tn There is also mild edema within the gluteus medius and minimus tendons and edema around the gluteus maximus. There is also thickening of the gluteus minimus and medius. Everything is bilateral except the fluid signal is greater on the right hip. I have limited diffuse scleroderma and am wondering if this may be an autoimmune response. If so, would surgery help?
Avatar f tn I might question the utility of repairing the gluteus medius in an 83 year old, I suspect there are degenerative changes to be found in the gluteal muscle of most patients over 80. Certainly, if she has not had PT, I dont think there is a problem to starting it at this point, since she is a year post op. I would also recommend new Xrays of her hip to see if she is arthritic.
Avatar f tn Thank you so much for your comments. I had not heard of PRP previously. I couldn't agree with you more in not having arthroscopic repair done by someone not specifically experienced in this type of surgery, and especially with repair of the gluteus tendon. I know of a doctor at HSS who has done work in this area, and I hope to be able to speak with him about taking me on as a patient. As you state, to just find someone to go in w/o the experience is not the way to go.
Avatar n tn I somehow managed to pull a muscle in my right gluteus. I'm not sure the exact muscle, but by looking at various medical images online, it appears to be somewhere in the realm of the gluteus maximus or gluteus medius area. Throughout the day I have been stretching, sitting, standing, walking, crouching, etc. The pain has now traveled down the outer thigh of my right leg all the way down to my ankle and foot. I cannot walk without a limp.
713151 tn?1229544393 Low back pain in the sacral and sacroiliac regions is most likely be due to problems in the gluteus medius. Pain referred from trigger points in the gluteus medius is less likely to involve the thigh; gluteus maximus trigger points restricts flexion at the hip whilst Piriformis trigger points restricts medial rotation. I hope this was helpful. Please take care and good luck in finding a diagnosis.
Avatar f tn I've been experiencing a terrible pain in my left hip and it goes all the way to my gluteus maximus. Just wondering if this is normal. And any way to get rid of the pain because it's killing me..
Avatar m tn I did the same thing a few years back to find out I sprained my SI joint (sacral illiac joint) and have had to really focus on strengthening my gluteus medius and minimus ever since to keep it in check. The band on the outside of the leg is the IT Band and it is a problem for a lot of people. If you bend your knee and see your knee cap pointing slightly out to the side then, yes it is tight. The best stretch for it is with using a foam roller, a large cylindrical tube of dense foam.
Avatar m tn They form contraction knots or myofascial trigger points-areas that if pressed causes pain. These taut muscles can occur in the gluteus maximus and adductor magnus muscles. The adductor magnus muscle trigger points when pressed can cause the pain to extend into the thighs and also the pelvic floor, so this might explain your occasional vaginal pain as well. Also this can cause painful intercourse as well.
Avatar m tn I have arthritis in the lower back, bursitis in the left hip, tendonitis in the gluteus minimus and gluteus medius. I have pain in the lower back and hip. I also have lower left abdominal pain and intermittent left testicle pain. All my blood tests and urine tests as well as a FIT test have come back good. I have had hip x-ray and hip ultrasound that confirm the arthritis, bursitis and tendonitis. I have anxiety and abdomen pain as well intermittent left testicle pain that I can not explain.
Avatar f tn Hello. In complete tears, there is typically a surgical repair suggested by the doctor. However, if you are not getting a surgical repair, rest and rehabilitation would be key. How much pain are you in? Have you been referred to a physical therapist? This would be a good way to identify where you should be in your rehabilitation process. If not, you can put in a search engine 'gluteus medius rehabilitation exercises.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed by ultrasound as having a gluteus medius tear. I'm not sure if it's a full tear or a partial tear. The radiologist wrote on his statement that the muscle looks torn and hasn't attached properly to its insertion on the greater trochanter after the surgery. I had hip replacement surgery 4 months ago. It took a long time before I could lift my leg sidelying, and I can still only do it partially and with pain, and only very few repetitions.
Avatar n tn I am 9 weeks pregnant and this is my first pregnancy and instead of gaining weight I am losing weight. I haven't had any nausea or vomiting in the past 2 days but I am still losing weight. I am scared that this could affect my baby. Is there something wrong or is this normal ?
Avatar n tn Hi there, Hope you are doing well. A good dietary regime and exercises all will be helpful in losing weight. Losing weight in a healthy way is important for maintaining the glow of your skin. Eat lots of fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, fruits and consume less of potato, sweetened and processed foods. Start your day by drinking lemon juice in warm water. Have fruits with lots of vitamin C in breakfast that will help you cut fats as vitamin C is a fat burner.
Avatar f tn Hello there, It would be really dangerous to you to lose that much weight, ie 15 lbs in 2 weeks. A good amount of weight is about 2 lbs per week. The middle of August is about 4 weeks away. Even in 4 weeks, unless you go on what I would call a drastic diet or a starvation diet which would probably put your body in shock, you can't lose 15 lbs in a healthy way. Some people might think that if you drastically reduce your calorie intake, the weight will just fall off you. This is not true.
Avatar f tn I cannot exercise a whole lot do to a medical condition where I suffer from daily headaches and pressure in my head. Losing weight will actually help this condition. Besides my overall health, this is why it is so important that I lose weight. I have lost weight in the past, but always seem to gain it back. I think that I was not eating enough calories. i was staying at about 1000 a day. I lost 70 pounds, but gained it all back plus a lot more.
29837 tn?1414534648 This is the weight I weighed at 27 years old. For many years now, my weight has been 185. The now weight of 175 lbs. is a loss of 17 lbs. in less than 3 weeks after leaving the hospital. Funny thing is, my appetite is ravenous, my blood tests all came beck fine last week, as well as still cleared of Hep C. My energy level is normal I've heard somewhere that because muscle weighs, it has to be taken into consideration when weighing someone.
Avatar f tn Its good you've set a goal and are looking to find out how to achieve it! However losing 15 pounds in a month is unrealistic and unhealthy. Did you know it takes about a year for your body to adjust to losing 10 pounds? It's important to remember weight loss is a marathon and not a sprint. In order to lose weight and keep it off, you shouldn't look at it as weight loss but a way to become healthier!
