My daughter has had hip pain for the past 5 years. For several years the orthopedic doctor kept saying it was tendonitis. A year age it became so painful she stopped every type of exercising. Prior to that she was a cross country runner. She was told repeatedly she would not do permanent damage if she continued running. She has tried cortisone shots to no relief. She has tried PT several times. In June she had arthroscopic surgery to release a tendon and clean out all the inflammation. Now she can only walk a couple of blocks....is on pain medication to get through the day and night. The doctors told us last April she had a cyst in the acetebulum but it would not be causing all this pain.
When she had the artroscopic surgery in June the doctor told us he accidentally pushed the cyst further but should have nothing to do with her recovery.. We just saw another doctor and he just totally discounted the idea the cysts could be causing all her pain. He was referred by the other doctor. My daughter was a very active person and now is relegated to a handicap parking pass...please hel
