Oh my! @Bellydansr this sounds so much like my situation with the labral tear and groin pain. When I first started going to the doctor about the groin pain, I had an MRI done in which it was determined that I had a torn labrum in my left hip. I could ride bikes, etc. and nothing would bother me, but then about an hour later, the groin pain was pretty bad. Due to my age (55 at the time) my doctor said that having the torn labrum repaired would open me up to arthritis in my hip and he recommended a hip replacement. I put it off for over a year and had it done in December 2016. Just like you, I wanted the groin pain fixed and gone... My hips never really hurt even though on the x-ray you could see that the joint space was getting pretty narrow. My left leg (hip replacement side) was also longer so he shortened it by about 1/2 inch. My question I'm trying to figure out is (and my doctor hasn't/won't answer) is the labrum removed during hip replacement surgery, or if it is torn, is it fixed? I know I am only 9 weeks out, but I have the same symptoms now as I did before hip replacement!
