Persisting dull pain in hip, buttocks, leg post ultrasound treatment, had breaks in interaticularis, Vitamin D3 deficiency, wearing a belt during walking. Recovery time?

Hi Doctor I am a 43 year old woman who developed excruciating hip (left) pain radiating down to the leg last month. Xray revealed break in pars interaticularis and Vitamin D3 deficiency. I am on my last session of ultrasound treatment . Will be started on some exercises this week. The pain is much better but there is a dull sensation of pain all the time especially during sideward movement in the left hip, buttock and thigh. I wear a belt when walking around. When can I expect this pain to subside and what are the precautions for the future? AAAAAAA Balakrishnan

See an Orthopaedic surgeon or someone who specialises in Spine surgery. Pars break per se should not cause so much prolonged hip pain. Better to rule out assoctd conditions like trochanteric bursiitis, hip OA, slipped disc, etc. Usually the pain will settle down in 2-3 months, if not settling, you may need an MRI to rule out any other local problem, or may need a surgical stabilisation of that problem vertebral segment.
