Hi - I have been having back and hip pain for almost a year. All of the attention was given to teh back until my Dr. asked for me to have a Hip MRI. Below are the findings. Can you let me know if you feel this is a serious injury and of so, do you think it requires surgery?

1. Tear of the entire superior labrum extending anterior to posterior with small associated paralabral cyst formation and focal detachment of the anterior/superior labrum.
2. Mild trochanteric bursitis (small amount of edema and inflammtory change).
3. Mild iliopsoas bursitis (small amount of fluid with the bursa).

  • I've had laberal tears & 3 surgeries to fix, I'm still in pain (hip). The Dr's don't know what to do and won't do a hip replacement.
