I fractured my left femur almost 5 years ago and had a rod & pins inserted and then removed a year later. Ever since, I have had a pain in my left hip whenever I do abduction exercises or other similar movements. I can only describe the pain as feeling like it is pulling and will snap if I do not relax the muscle. I have gone to physical therapy and exercise frequently but the pain always continues. Has anyone else experienced this? Any advice? Thanks!!
