So I found out this week that I will need to have arthroscopic hip surgery to repair a torn/shredded labrum, FAI hip impingement (cam/pincer) and clean up some cartilage. Doc says I will be on crutches for 4 weeks and no baseball/golf/heavy work/etc for up to 4 months. That also included driving but screw that I can't be out of my classroom for that long. Anyone else had this done? I have been doing some research and there is a wide variety info out there regarding people's experience with the surgery. I am not looking forward to the surgery or extended recovery/rehab but from what the dr. says it should put off the need for a full hip replacement early on in life. The annoying thing is that this surgery is fairly new so the treatment protocol after the actual surgery is different depending on the surgeon so nothing seems to be consistent. I am still trying to figure out the following: -if I need a Continuous Passive Motion machine for post operation recovery. -if I should invest/borrow a cryo icing machine - not sure if they are worth it. -If I will be in a brace. It seems that is a 50/50 reality -How long I will actually not be able to drive. -If I should "pre-hab" or not. The issue is that the movements to make the muscles stronger are also most often the ones that are doing damage to my hip joint. I just want to avoid as much muscle atrophy as I can.
