Customer: replied 3 years ago.
My daughter in law can't walk or bear her body weight and her symptoms are identical to pubic symphosis disorder, we have tried physiotherapists and gynocolgists but they can offer no help and at 34 she has been confined to bed in extreme pain she is not pregnant . she suffered from this in her last pregnancy 4 yrs ago. This problem has bee ongoing moths and we are desperate on what we can do would it be possible sort of hormone therapy to correct this. Do you think surgery would be needed.
