Chronic Hip Flexor Pain

I had a sever hip flexor tear 2 years ago (mis-diagnosed by a physio as a minor sprain). It took around 10 months to fully heal, as I was still walking around during the day, and whilst I now feel I didn't look after it properly, at the time I was fed up of not being able to participate in sporting activities.

Now, 2 years on, I am still struggling with hip flexor pain, which leaves me unable to climb stairs and lift my lef pain free, as well as finding driving/walking/bending an issue. Has anyone else had a lasting effect from a hip injury? Are there any hip braces available I can use? 

I am getting more and more fed up with being worried about participating in activities that may aggravate my pain, but I'm hesitant to go back to the Drs years on!

    Right hip joint pain took me off the tennis court last november. After misdiagnosis as sciatica, finally got a referal to Orthopedic surgeon. He sees bone on bone, cartlidge gone. Going in for cortisone injection today. I am suffering many of the same problems as you, and am trying to avoid a hip replacement as the surgery presents risks with my other problems (triple bypass 6 years ago, Chronic kidney disease etc).

    I have to use a cane all the time now. Some kind of brace would be interesting although I cant see how it would work.
