You may not believe this, and the surgeon was VERY surprised.....I initially had a very small tear repaired in April....and it has re-torn, quite a lot more badily than the inital tear so I am now waiting to have it repaired for a second time....can't believe it, having to go through it all again . He said he only seen it happen 3 times in 6 years...must be a special case. They therefore not surprised I been in pain.
Parklife, hope all is going well for you, and to others too, just want to feel normal now and get this finished. Mr Conroy did say there is a possibility they won't be able to fix it, something to do with the structrure they used to fix the inital tear being stuck, if this is the case they remove the whole cartiladge, anyone have any ideas on whether that is good or bad? Conroy said it can be good because it cant tear anymore, but, the jury is out as to whether it needs to be there to act as a 'cushion'....hmmm
I would be wary of the groin pain you are getting. I had a scan before xmas as the groin pain I am getting is almost worse than pre-op. No idea what they will find or do if they find something has gone wrong. The operation I had was pretty straight forward, just a small cartiladge repair, so no idea what is wrong now, unless its come apart !?!
I did pick up exerise classes and 20mins of running about 3 months post op, but have had to cut it back as the impact (strangely not the running) hurt hip.
Even when I have done hardly any exercise I get the pain, specifically at night
