I've been diagnosed with a labrum tear of the left hip and have had associated hip and groin pain. I am also having nerve type pain down my leg. Lately this pain has traveled further down the leg. An MRI of my lumbar spine indicated some mild degenerative stuff but no stenosis. I"m wondering if the nerve type pain down my leg can be caused by the labrum tear. I saw an orthropedic surgeon today and he thinks the hip and leg issues are seperate problems and said I should pick which to work on first. He thinks my hip will need to be scoped either way. So I need to decide whether to have surgery on the hip first or start PT and pain shots for the back problem that doesn't show up on MRI. Does anyone have any advice? Could the labrum tear cause me to stand, walk, sit differently that would cause pain like scatica down my leg? I guess I'm hoping if I get scoped it will fix both issues.
