Hi, I am in need of some advice, I am 54 and have been diagnosed with FAI and Dysplasia six years ago by a consultant I greatly respect but following a cycling accident the X-ray and ultrasound are said not to show the conditions along with the ultrasound technician saying my hips looked great. Any advice as I’m now listed for a left hip replacement as I’m not sure whether my chronic discomfort comes from being peri menopausal, the weather or just being over sensitive.

@Hew Welcome to BoneSmart! You don't say what symptoms you have. And have they gotten worse recently? What did your current surgeon say and recommend? We need a bit more background please.

At the moment flare ups as in groin discomfort after as little as my physio just assessing my ROM, also starting back at the gym and just going through the machines and exercises not actually doing any serious reps seems to have caused an issue. The other major issue is sitting in a hard chair becomes uncomfortable after a matter of a few minutes and sitting in a car it takes a while for me to move freely. I am/was a triathlete non professional and cycling is ok for anything up to 25 miles and I have a physical job moving around cases of wine and as long as they are cases of six I’m ok 12’s are too heavy.

@Hew How recent are the x-rays you posted. The left hip looks like it is partially bone on bone. They would certainly correlate with your symptoms.

Unfortunately time is not on your side. If you were diagnosed 6 years ago you are very lucky that hip has lasted as long as it has. It will only get worse - and this can happen very quickly. In my case I was limping slightly but getting around. Then what seemed like overnight, I was in major pain. The joint collapsed.

I believe these X-rays are from June 2019, can I ask you if you come from or which medical profession or a fellow patient who understands from a personal background?
