Hi-I have kaiser permanente and have had a hip mri. It showed a labrum tear of 1.5 cm. I will be going to an appt in several weeks to go over the mri with the dr. I am over age 50 and every time I have an orthopedic issue, all I am told is "it's arthritis". My question-is a 1.5 cm tear small? medium? Kasier NEVER wants to do anything to help. Just "physical therapy." My symptoms started with not being able to lift leg when getting into car or standing up. Over the course of two years, I have had more and more pain in the front hip area and clicking started about a year and a half ago.
