Endocrinologist 's  Response

I think the pain you are experiencing might be due to pelvic infection,get a check up done from a gynaecologist to rule out pelvic infection,even though you are hysterectomised, as being diabetic you are more prone to urinary tract and reproductive tract infection.

Other thing might be due to osteoporosis and weak back bones giving you back ache,so increase milk intake and start taking calcium daily and vitamin D once a week which might help you.

Keep your sugars under control.

Don't worry, every thing would be fine.

Take care.
