I am a 17 year old female, and injured my hip in October 2010. My orthopedic discovered that I had a severe labral tear. Recently I had arthroscopic surgery to fix this. After the surgery, the pain was gone. I had sufferered this pain in my groin area for over a year, and it was gone! It has only been 2 and a half weeks since the surgery. However, last week I "overdid it." I was on my crutches too much, and did way too much activity on my leg. The pain came back, and has been back for 6 days now. It is the same exact pain I had before my surgery. Did I reinjure it? Or is it just overworked and aggravated? I am so worried, and answers would help. Thanks.
Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment on the situation. If it has been 2 weeks since the surgery and there wasn’t much force involved, it might just be okay; however I would suggest getting it examined by your orthopedician just to be sure we are at pace with the healing process, to be on the safer side.
Hope this is helpful.
