Well after all of my back surgeries I just found out I need hip surgery. This sucks. My facet blocks helped my back pain but I have been having hip pain for about 3 months now. Well we x-rayed and I saw my ortho today. He said I would be an excellent canidate for hip resurfacing surgery. I have some osteophytes and arthritis causing friction when I walk and it is really painful. We are going to try a steriod injection in it Friday if no difference in a week than we are going to schedule the surgery. My ortho don't do it so I am going to have to travel to have it done.
Everyone call it minimilly invasive surgery. I don't know why its called that. They take out the lining of your hip and replace it and then they put a cap on the ball of your hip so no more friction. I thought that is would be just like sanding something down to give it more room. BOY WAS I WRONG! I am totally scared of this but I have to do what I have to do.
