Hip Labral tear

Posted , 4 users are following.

back in november of 2015 my hip gave out and i was in terrible pain i found out i tore my labrum so after many appointments of cortisone injections etc i had my first surgery to repair it June 30th 2016. i was fine for awhile then the pain was terrible again.  so i got my second surgery December 15th 2016, to smooth off the previous repair and remove my bursa. i was feeling good for quite some time but here and there the pain would start again. now in january 2018 (i’m 19) the pain is back. so much it’s making me limp. is it possible i would need another surgery? not sure what it going on!

    zs, sorry you are going through these multiple surgeries and so much pain, especially since you are so young! Only an x-ray or imaging of some kind along with physical exam with a good orthopedist can tell you for sure what is going on. I've had a total hip replacement, and then surgical repair of gluteal tendon tears in the same hip. I have no experience with gluteal tears, although I have read about them and some people on the hip replacement forum have reported having them. If I were you, I'd post on that forum, since it is much more active and you may get some good replies there. This is the link: https://patient.info/forums/discuss/browse/hip-replacement-1109

    It seems likely you will need more surgery of some kind, and you should try to get the best orthopedic surgeon that you can find to give his/her diagnosis and treatment plan for you. Best of luck to you!

      You mean you have to have another MRI? I have had MRIs, but never with dye (or contrast). It's fairly common, though. There is lots of information about it if you google. Keyhole surgery, or laparoscopy, is a kind of minimally invasive surgery. So would they be trying to repair another labral tear? Or smoothing the previous repair? You need to know exactly what the diagnosis is and exactly what the physician recommends for treatment.

    Hi, first and formost let me say I am sorry for your trauma and at the outset sadly confess I do not know either and I too have labral tears and are looking for answers but lets talk-so is this correct the only hip issue you know of is labral tear or tears, and as you say the surgeries have not been good, what did the surgeon use stitches or a type of plastic clip passed through holes drilled through the bone? I notice google says labral tear surgery after 40 years of age have a record of bad results but I am not sure why perhaps due to the beginnings of arthritus, can you tell me what you have learned, I do know that this medicalforum helps us all find important info that helps us know what to do but so far my search for info on labral tear surgery seems scant but we should keep searching how are you doing now ?
