Hi, I totally separated my hamstring from my pelvis while water skiing 9 days ago. Have been told by ortho surgeon on my small town (250k people) that this injury is very rare, is primarily seen in water/snow skiing injuries. I am 52 and doc seems to think my age and lack of need to return to any level of sports means I shouldn't have surgery. Am worried about long term pain and other issues if I dont have it surgically fixed. I would love to hear from anyone with experience/knowledge in this area. Thanks!
