Macerated tear of the acetabular labrum of the right hip

Recommended Posts

So the source of my pain has been identified to the above. No triathlon for me for a while I guess.

Anyone had this?

On another note I've discover opiates for pain relief

Take an MRI of 100 hips and about 80 will have this. Might not be the source of your pain at all.

Spot on.

I was booked in for surgery for a labrum tear but on a hunch decided to get one more professional opinion.

Turned out to be tendinopathy in my illiopsoas, and after a couple of months of rehab I was good to go again.

Saved me a very lengthy recovery from what would have been an unnecessary operation.

Hi. I have a tear in my left hip. If it is an untidy tear they can go in and clean it up which will have you on crutches and out out for a while. One of our local Pro women had both hips done and is back good as new. If its like mine surgery isn't an option and its actually only the inflammation in the area that causes the pain. I had cortisone inserted whilst getting an MRI. Problem solved. The pain can come back as the injury is not fixed just the inflammation however I had this done over 2 years ago and have completed an Irondistance race since then. Don't think it will ever be a 100% but that may be due to underlying weakness in that side which may have caused the tear in the first place.

I only had to take a week off. Only down side is the cost. Sports DR, initial MRI to find the problem, then second MRI with cortisone. $1500. You get about half the MRI back.

Agree with this.

My MRI report showed this as well, my surgeon said a lot of people have this but in a most cases it's not an issue. Mine turned out to be the beginnings of a stress fracture fortunately caught it early enough. Still means no running for another couple of months, I will then get another MRI to make sure it's healed.

So after multi MRIs, X-rays, ultrasounds etc the specialist recommended a cortisone injection into the hips. first day in ages with little pain but no running. Looks like teams for me, now who want's to race with me?

Great stuff Shuffla. 

BTW, The internet is still waiting for Ruley to explain his knowledge of prolapsed rectum.

Sorry I was a bit brief (getting dinner sorted). Had the surgery 30 June 2015.  Got it done in Hobart by a doc that does a stack of AFL players. 

Did away with crutches within 48 hours. Back running within a few months. Did the AAA tri in March 2016. 

Hasnt missed a beat since. Used to give a heap of grief on car trips longer than 45mins and given I do a bit of driving for work it was becoming common pain. 

Doc did say the the “injury” is common in a lot of people but most are never impacted and do not require surgery.

Mine's a similar story to Shuffla's above.  Had the surgery and returned to the sport.  I'm very conservative when it comes to treatments etc but sometimes surgery appears to be the best option.  There's more info in the thread link below...

There was some great advice in that thread and it really helped me with the decision to have the surgery.  The hips now fairly good as long as I don't overdo it, but it will never be 100% again.
