On 10/18/18, I had a hip scope. They were not able to access the joint because my sockets were too tight and too deep. They shaved the cam and pincer impingement as well as debridement of the labrum. However, they were not able to access the joint to see how much arthritis I had. I saw another hip scope surgeon who said to scope it again would be a herculean effort as he would have to reconstruct my labrum which he recommended against at my age (49). He recommended a possible hip replacement. I am leaning that way. Any advice would be appreciated. I also had a hernia surgery with mesh before the hip scope that may also be causing problems. The ultrasound guided hip cortisone shot has given me relief in my hip but still having some issues around the hernia incision. I am thinking of getting the hip done before having mesh removed as I have tight hip flexor and upper thigh pain that is very painful from just walking the dog, cleaning the house or mowing the grass. Plus the mesh removal requires a lot of walking post op which causes the same hip pain mentioned above. Any input is appreciated.
