Patient Comments (1)
Sebastopol, CA |
I had arthroscopic hip surgery to repair a torn labrum eight years ago. I have not had a pain free day since then. When I followed up with the doctor regarding the pain sent me to a pain management doctor and I had no improvement. He concluded he could not help me further. When I returned several years later he did not know why I was still experiencing so much pain and weakness other than to suggest I might have bursitis.
