Mom just had hip surgery for labral tear, now has no feeling in left perineal area. Had an epidural.?

Nerve compression: Assuming hip arthroscopy--if so--we use a table to provide gentle traction to leg to put camera in hip. Pressure is placed in groin and foot is pulled in a ski boot. This sounds like pressure causing nerve to go to sleep in perineal region. These types of problems frequently resolve on their own. Suggest talking to your surgeon about it. ...Read more

What to do about hip labral tear-pain after cortisone?

What to do about hip labral tear-pain after cortisone?

I have some symptoms of a hip labral tear but the MRI came back normal. I have been doing therapy for 4 weeks now with no results. What do you think?

I have some symptoms of a hip labral tear but the MRI came back normal. I have been doing therapy for 4 weeks now with no results. What do you think?

MRI results: Clinical symptoms are far more correct than MRI or x-ray results. Those studies may not always pick up an anatomical abnormality as often as one would think. If therapy is not doing it then maybe a visit back to an orthopedic specialist is indicated. He/she may recommend surgery to definitively get an answer to your symptoms. ...Read more
