hey Mike, dont know if your watching this thread or not, but ive just had athroscopy surgery to repair the torn labrum in my left hip, also had to reshape the bone. my problem had been getting worse for years. i blame it on sports, but apparently its degenerative and isnt covered by our goverments health scheme, it was pretty costly, i could have bought some very cool and unnecessary gear with the money.
anyhow, went in at 12 on Thurs afternoon, the anaesthetist got me nice and 'comfortable', had the op at about 2pm. was fn sore when i came too though, but i got icecream and morphine. part of the labrum had too much damage for him to fix, so he 'just cut a bit out', but said i should be good to go jogging and stuff a while down the track. stayed in for 2 nights total, and am now gettin round pretty good on crutches. i havnt had a peek at the wounds yet. ill keep you updated with recovery so you kinda know what to expect.
