Groin pain following labral tear arthroscopic procedure

Posted , 2 users are following.

I had surgery for suspected labral tear, a tear was found and bone anchors used to put it right. Initially I improved but then started with pain in groin and through to back of pelvis. I had a psoas tendon injection that only relieved it for about 10 days. Rest hasn't helped, physio seems to irritate it. Has any one been through similar. I'm at my wits end

    I had a THR 11 months ago, I have groin pain also all my scans are neg. therapy doesn't help and I go 3 x's a week for the past 9 months. I'm going in for exploratory surgery on June 5. I'll let you know what they find. I've also had 2 hip injections that didn't work. My ortho suspects it could be the psoas tendon is tight. Hope you get an answer and feel better soon it's so painful. Keep us posted and I'll do the same.

      Well hospital visit didn't go as planned. It was agreed that the psoas tendon is causing the problem but they are unwilling to do a release procedure on it. There are no guarantees that the op would relieve the pain but may cause weakness. Basically been told to live with the pain and adjust my life accordingly. 😕

      I just had a major hip revision. I too had a psoas issue, I was 1 yr post op from a total hip replacement, my ortho was great he was concerned with the post op groin pain. He went in and saw it was a loose bone impinginment. So he removed the bone it was the major acetabulm then my psoas was so tight he was about to cut into it but tried a menuever and it just loosened I'm 5 days post op now. I'm still in pain but not the same pain I was in. I'm basically back to square one but on my way to healing. Don't take no for an answer go c another ortho. If your in ny I will give you my ortho's number. Keep me posted.

      Update :- my notes are being sent to a London specialist for a second opinion. They have looked at my x rays and scans and decided I have a slightly shallow hip. Surgery to provide increased femoral coverage may be an option.
