After a setback with my right hip, there's a good chance I will be recommended to have arthroscopy on my hip, which is a fairly new concept. It is believed I have some loose bodies or other irritation that does not appear on an MRI. I am the ultimate candidate for this type of surgery (great shape, many active years left, can stave off and prevent arthritis and eventual replacement), and recovery rate is supposed to be very, very good. I have made tremendous progress, but it's obvious there is still something wrong with the joint though the MRI does not show anything. Joint mobility drills seem to irritate it more than anything.
Anybody out there had experience with this? I hate to think about surgery, but it's looking like the last refuge, and I DON'T want to develop arthritis and have a replacement down the road.
