Hip Arthroscopy surgery for a labral tear. Should I have the surgery?
I have been diagnosed with a labral tear in my left hip by MRI. I have done 2 rounds of physical therapy, 6 weeks each time. I have had left hip pain for approximately 1 yr. Not sure how it happenned exactly. I did fall in my driveway a yr ago, but don't remember having pain in my hip at that moment. I also used to exercise regularly at a gym in a body pump class where we did a lot of squats and lunges. So either one of these could have caused this I guess. My Michigan Dr is reccommending the hip arthroscopy surgery. I am very hesitant to do the surgery. Has anyone had this surery and had a complete recovery, and how long of a recovery. The Dr is saying 6wks, possbly 8.
