I had surgery for my slipped epiphysis when I was in 8th grade. I was misdiagnosed and told that i had a knee problem and then told that i had nothing wrong with me at all and that i was just pretending i had a knee problem. Soon we found out that i needed emergency surgery. I had a pin inserted to hold my hip from slipping anymore. As a senior in high school i started having pain in my hip during my softball season. Once i got to college i played volleyball competitively but had a lot of pain in my hip. December of my freshman year I had another surgery. The options were to take out the pin and reconstruct my hip and be in recovery for more than 6 months or to simply take out the pin and see if that would help the pain. We opted for the surgery to just take out the pin and that has worked wonderfully. I am now going to be a junior in college and still play volleyball for my college. When i do exercises that move my knee close to my chest i have severe pain in my hip for several days. I am not sure if i have arthritis or if i need further surgery....Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
