Too early to say on the stretches helping as this problem has only just been diagnosed. The after care has been pretty shoddy, been a battle to get seen since surgery. Walking is the most painful for me too. I’m fine sitting, sleeping and cycling seems to be pain free too. But walking is a real challenge for me.@Butterfly77 Sorry you’re struggling so much post-surgery. I don’t have exactly the same situation as you, but have been dealing with awful hip flexor tendinitis post FAI surgery. It stinks.
Have the stretching exercises helped you at all? For myself personally, I’ve found that stretching makes my hip worse. Walking and hip flexion are the most painful. I’m also quite young (32) and follow up with my surgeon tomorrow.
Hang in there
Hi after reading your post what does psoas tendinitis feel like day to dayI have read your story and experienced exactly the same as you post-recovery. I am eight months in. I tried everything PT and the surgeon told me, but nothing worked. Rested, injected, MRI to rule out other issues, and finally diagnosed with Psoas Impingement, a miserable condition. You start to think you are insane; all you hear are good recovery stories.
The x-rays all looked normal, and I have a Mako robotic hip. My surgeon fixed Psoas Impingement as a specialty and was sure he had not given me the condition. I am small, five foot tall and have hip dysplasia and a labral tear rather than arthritis. I am the only patient he has done this to, and I have a 10mm overhang on the jagged edge of the cup right where the tendon is. My cup is 48cm and should have had only a 46cm cup.
I have noticed you are young, making it more difficult as you are still trying to work and look after others, etc. I have worked out during this ordeal who my true and trusted friends are and those who have no idea. I am a University Lecturer in Disability and have always treated people respectfully and with dignity. I am not yet fixed, but I will continue until I have some semblance of my old life back with walking, pilates and without some pain.
THR can certainly be more complicated and technically challenging if hip dysplasia is in play....I had hip dysplasia before surgery too, I wonder if this requires a more invasive procedure when replacing the hip joint.I
It made not a jot of difference tbh. I’m up and down, have a week or two where I feel normal and no pain then it comes back and I can’t straighten properly and get this awful sharp pain down the front of my leg travelling from groin all the way to the knee. Must admit I thought the same, being young I thought I’d fly along and get my life back. Not at all. Last week could barely walk and this week I’m fine.@Butterfly77 Just wanted to check in and see how your injection went Sept 8. Have you noticed an improvement? I am In some what of a simular situation. Difficult to stand up straight and that front hip impingmemt is no joke. So dam tight and painful in that area. I Still can't get a shoe or sock on. We are around the same age. I thought being young would have made this easier. Nooooot! I can sympathize with your struggle.
