My daughter has been battling hip pain for slightly over a year. Originally brought on we thought from a soccer fall/injury. We have gone through the standard regimen of PT, X-Rays, MRI w/out contrast, more PT, MRI w/contrast which finally culminated in a diagnosis today of a labral tear due to FAI (Femoro-Acetabular Impingement)... The OS (same one who did my THR) is recommending arthroscopy to remove the impingement and repair the labrum. Anyone have experience with this on young teenagers? Was the outcome positive, how long was the recovery, what questions should I be asking, etc?... I'm concerned about this taking place at such an early age and if it will contribute/lead to arthritis down the road... Thanks!
