Am I the first?
Hello havent written on here much but have posted messages to Pipes on FAI.
Started running 2006.
Started getting sore hip 2007
After one particularly hard long run gradually more and more painful running and gradual loss of flexibility for yoga which I have done for 10 years.
Eventually after trying to run through the pain, trying rest, trying Physio and Hydrotherapy after a year got appointment with consultant on NHS by moaning (or thats what it feels like!)
After MRA at Derby Royal on Feb 15th have to wait until July 30th to see the consultant to discuss results.
Hoping for some sort of diagnosis PT thinks it is FAI consultant not so convinced.
Been following you all on this thread since last summer, keeping me sane thanks.
Hope you end up getting some recompense for all the money you have had to shell out.
Such lovely afternoon on Friday and as we had been doing sport relief stuff at school had trainers on so whilst I was walking the dog I began to jog and kept going for about 15 mins didnt seem to hurt too much. Woke up Sat morn and can hardly walk but boy did it feel good whilst I was doing it. Feel like a naughty school girl, Ha Ha
Its great to hear that you postops are so positive.
We have just aquired a water rower from a friend gonna give that a try in a bit.
Take care everyone.
Had my hip arthroscopy 2nd March. Had cam osteoplasty and labral thermal shrinkage. Was suppose to be a day case, but the general anaesthetic made me to sick, and had to stay overnight. Travelled back on my own in a taxi and train! Not something I would do again. For about two weeks I did exercises to gain more range of motion. Difficult at first, but gradually got better. Had my stiches out 15th March. Surgeon really pleased with my progress. He suggested I could progress to strengthening exercises with a physiotherapist, which I am doing currently. Pain wise, there is some discomfort when I walk, and also after doing the exercises, which I was expecting. I am currently on 1600mg of Ibuprofen taken with Omeprazole.
Thanks for getting in touch. Charndon 5k is my PB course, and my club are often well represented, being as it is so close to Aylesbury. I really enjoy doing the Motavation races, probably more geared up for club runners, but that isnt a bad thing as far as I am concerned.
I had my operation at the Wellington Hospital, St Johns Wood. I am in the fortunate position of having private medical cover, which did fast track the process somewhat. It did take me about 18 months for it to be diagnosed though. Initially I went to Bisham Abbey, near Marlow, but I lost patience with them after a period of about 3 months. They put it down to functional weakness in my core, but I wasnt happy so I made my excuses. After trying a bloke at my club who is an osteopath, without much further success, he suggested going to Elite Physical Medicine in Aylesbury, and after seeing the guy in charge, Paul Thawley, he said I had a problem with my hip. I think they call it the Faber test, and that proved positive. So I got in touch with a guy called Rahul Patel, who did a few tests, and an X-ray. The results were inconclusive, so he suggested having an MRI, with contrast injection. Which did bring some relief. He concluded that the injection was a success, so would proceed with the operation. I believe the diagnosis was Cam impingement, and a small labral tear. The surgeon did say I could return to running, obviously take it very steadily. I also asked if there were any signs of osteoarthritis, which worried me, but he said he couldnt find any signs, which is good.
I havent set any goals yet, running of any kind would be good at the moment. Im looking long term to the next cross country season, whick will give me enough time hopefully to regain my fitness and strength.
Stay positive, hopefully you will get back running at some point. I know it can be frustrating sometimes!
