    Does anyone know if a labrum tear can lead to a total THR if left alone? Everyone answered my questions about cortisone which I’ve been getting, but if I don’t do the surgery the doctors have recommended will it get worse, or does this surgery lead to a THR?

    @Yuki I think the best person to answer your question is our medical expert @Josephine . I've tagged her so she should be stopping by soon.

    Well it can because the damage in the hip can get worse and ultimately cause arthritis in the joint. Also, very often a labral tear doesn't just happen on it's own. There are other issues such as a cam deformity but do read this article - it's explained there much better.

    I had a labral tear because I had a pistol grip deformity. Since the repair and core decompression didn’t go as planned, I’m getting LTHR 6/18

    Thanks for all info, Josephine. You are wonderful sea of knowledge.

    Sbrummer I so wish you good luck on your THR. My hubby went though 2 back to back THR. I can tell you, you're going to feel so much better. The road to recovery is a long one, but worth it. He’s not in pain anymore, and walking just fine. Let’s us know how your doing after surgery. Good luck. :)

    Thought I’d share the news I received from my Ortho doctor yesterday. I was told stay away from labrum tear surgery, it sets you up for a THR. He said just keep getting cortisone shots, it’s a myth that they do any damage. I believe him. They took xrays again yesterday and no cartilage damage. Yea!

    Just thought I’d share my good news. Yuki

    Wonderful news.
    And your husband dodged having to reciprocate your assistance while he healed.
    Glad he is doing well...
    Hope the injections are "just what the doctor ordered!":)

    Have a Great Memorial Day!:SUNsmile:
