Thanks Rebecca. I'm due back at sports med next week so I will ask for an MRI referral. Sorry to hear that's it's come to the stage of a re-op for you. I'm in 2 minds about surgery. Sometimes it seems like it's my only hope but so many people still seem to be struggling after. It's really an impossible choice and only a crystal ball could help me make the decision. The worst part is I've emigrated out of the uk, and would probably need to travel back to get surgery, abandoning what has so far been a pretty successful emigration effort.

Hi all

I am 1.5 weeks post my re-operation on left hip. They told me they had to remove the cartilage as it was too weak to repair, and they removed some more boney bits that could have caused the re-tear. I think I am doing ok. I can get around the house ok, frist week was not so good. Not sure what the removal of the cartilage means, they did say, its just can't re tear. Doing exercises,  basic streghthening, from physio, a little unsure whether I am trying to get around the house on own a little too early...Hope you are all doing well!
