Interesting to catch up with everyone's stories and rehab, keep the chin up and stay positive, and don't overdo it.

Moozer are you putting ice on it, and have you had your stitches removed yet. make sure you massagage the area with e45 or vaseline as it can become hypersensitive.

All the tissues will be starting to knit back together and this may cause some discomfort, you need to remember even tho it was arthroscopic they put alot of fluid into the joint your fascia, mucscles fat and other bits will all be joining back together, i started getting pain around top of my thigh near scar site after 4 weeks, consultant advised this was due to the capsule starting to reform and heal.

Loverunning: Consult went well, he was amazed at how well i was mobilising, told me to continue rehab as im doing and all should be ok, i asked about running and he said to come back to him in 5 months and we could discuss it then, it would be silly to try now when things are going so well.


Ive been told i can swim and do a bit of easy cycling, physio has given me stretches and strengthening excercises to continue with so im going to follow instruction.

Back at work on the 26th of this month, light duties for a month then back onto the helicopter, where i think i'll find if everything has worked out well.


hope everyones recovering well.

All the best moozer,  let us know how your post op recovery goes, and use what painkillers your offered, painfree is good for the mind.......


Loverunning- good article you wrote , im due back at surgeon on 7th March, so i'll see what he has to say about a return to activity, ive resigned myself to only doing 3miles if im allowed to run again and make use of my mountainbike more often, i feel my recovery has been pretty good, only a mild tightness in the area affected but ive had no symptoms of  past (so far)which can only be good.

Moozer- As far as i'm aware its all to do with avoiding hyper flexing of the hip, and its not high impact.

Loverunning, everyone's response is different, to a GA and invasive procedures, still think it was bad practice they never gave you spinal when awake, for exactly the worry you had when you woke up, I have felt pretty tired for the last week, not sure why as I stopped paracetamol and ibuprofen on day 3 post op prob the boredom and rest is the cause.
I didn't get any proper feedback from surgeon apart from they stiched down the laberal tear and shaved of the impingement, there is some degree of arthritis, I'll wait till my 4 week follow up for the full debrief, I hadn't been running much for the last year down to sheer laziness, but if I'm allowed I'm going to restrict myself to 5kmwith the odd 10k, and lots more mountain biking.

Park life- your first paragraph is spot on, I think too many people want to run before they walk, excuse the pun, but take each days it comes and don't expect miracles, its a major procedure, but because its arthroscopic i think some don't see it that way.

Wish you all well with your recovery..

Love running- i had a spinal last week for my surgery, seemingly the spinal helps with post op pain and recovery although surprised that you were asleep when you got it, the point of giving you one is to make sure it's worked before your off to sleep. The anaesthetist commented that they are starting to use spinals pre op now as they seem to get better results in the suppression of pain.

I had my surgery last week, Mr gaston seems to have done a good job so far, described my hip as "a bit of a mess" . I had very little pain post op and went home same day as I managed to brim the urine pot much to the nurses amusement, still got 2 crutches for support but hopefully down to one next week, only symptoms i feel are a tightness around my groin and buttock but then he has had to cut through muscles and so on tho get to the joint, and I'm not moving about a great deal.

Only one complaint, BOREDOM!!!!!

Hi folks, thought id let you all know i had my consultation with with Mr Gaston, and i asked to be put on waiting list for surgery, thankfully no further degeneration from 3 years past, i was told theres a 9-12 week waiting list so looking like early feb time, My surgeon is now doing these ops as day cases now, i dont know if anyone who recently has had the op was treated as a day case, further too that he did say it would be 2 years before he could determine whether the op is a success or not, hopefully that can give people some hope who are still suffereing pain post surgery.

 I'm a little apprehensive re my surgery as im a bit of a control freak and like to know whats going on and whats happening, dont think my boss is going to be too pleased as he was hoping for April time, however i want it over and done with and try to get back to normality.


Its a shame too hear of all peoples pain and discomfort they have,


Dav0 hows your rehab going, with you having similar challenges with work, im interested to hear how you adapted to work again.


Everyone else, Keep the chin up, we've always got tommorow!
