Truthfully, time-consuming strengthening exercises aside, I still feel pain at rest. And I'm embarrassed to admit that after Sunday night's break-neck speed airport sprint, the pelvic area throbbed. Not a good sign.
I'm considering holding off and giving it another week, at least until I see the PT; I might need to get a little more aggressive and do more ultrasound to promote healing - or even ask for phonoporesis. That's steroid cream applied to the area with ultrasound: The ultrasound allows the cream to penetrate down to the bone (depending on the location of the bone, but the pubic symphysis is basically right under the skin so it would work). There isn't a lot of sound data behind phonophoresis, so if I had insurance it wouldn't pay for it, but I'd try it anyway. And my insurance is total crap so I'm paying out of pocket regardless.
On a totally unrelated note, a house up the street I have always thought was adorably charming is for sale. Despite uptown New Orleans' prices, it may be in our price range! If I DO go running, it's going to be past that house to sneak a few peeks!
