New hip pain and back pain. 5mm round sclerotic focus was seen in acetabulum considered bony island. Should I be concerned about this finding?

Bone island benign: The bone island is benign but I'm not certain what you have hip and back pain. The x-ray obviously doesn't give a diagnosis and my question is what about the musculoskeletal examination. You may want to ask your physician to have you see a rheumatologist to help clarify your issue ...Read more

How can I begin to do weight training after a hip reconstruction?

How can I begin to do weight training after a hip reconstruction?

Slowly: Typically, hip reconstruction refers to hip replacement. If that is the case, most surgeons have different protocols on weight bearing and resumption of different activities. In the first six months, it is possible to over-do things and potentially cause a problem to your implant. My best advice is to check with your surgeon and closely follow those instructions to ensure your best result. ...Read more

Avoid re-injury: In my experience groin strains (hip flexor/adductor muscle strains) are common in american football kickers and soccer players."rice" (rest, ice, compression, elevation / nsaids) is most effective for treatment initially. The best advice I can give to avoid re-injury is to be certain your injury has completely healed before playing again. Stretching exersises once healed? Benefit... ...Read more

My doctor ordered a Sacrum coccyx MRI, however, the report says MRI pelvis and the findings say MRI of the bony pelvis and sacrum. IS this correct?

My doctor ordered a Sacrum coccyx MRI, however, the report says MRI pelvis and the findings say MRI of the bony pelvis and sacrum. IS this correct?

It is difficult: To determine whether the study was tailored properly without knowing exactly what was performed, and what the clinical indications were. However, if you are concerned that they didn’t mention coccyx, that is not an issue because the coccyx is connected to the sacrum, and any study that visualized the sacrum would necessarily include the coccyx. There would be no way not to. ...Read more

My dad had a nuclear bone scan. Nuclear bone scan findings: there are several focal areas of isotope accumulation in the region of the sacroiliac joints bilaterally which correspond to lesions noted on the CT pelvis consistent with bony me

Possibly metastases: Nuclear bone scans usually demonstrate areas of increased bone metabolism, the bone reacting to a stimulus, such as tumor, fracture, infection, etc.Bone scan is very sensitive but not specific. Ct and MRI are cross sectional imaging that can more specifically identify the pathology and characterize the abnormalities on bone scan. ...Read more

Wide pelvis: Several reasons
a female pelvis is wider for childbirth requiring different angles in the femur (thigh bone) and knee. A mans muscles esp in the thighs are much larger giving a sleeker appearance. Also women store more fat and one of the areas a lot is stored is the hips. ...Read more

Is it true that men handle hip reconstruction much better than women?

Is it true that men handle hip reconstruction much better than women?

No: Women tend to put hip replacement off longer than men, so typically they have waited longer, have been less active, and their arthritis is more advanced, so surgery can be harder for them. The time to have this procedure done is when you are no longer able to carry out activities of daily living because of hip pain. That's true for men and women. ...Read more

Exploring?: At 1 1/2 your son is learning lots of things about his world and touching is one way to do that. Pinching/biting can be normal ways to explore; however, they are painful to the other people so we tend to want to discourage it. Tell him "ouch, that hurts, no pinch" and move his hand away. If you see him going to pinch intervene before he does it and say "no pinch, that hurts". ...Read more
