Is that the law in the UK? Whenever I asked for mine I was given the runaround. My OS finally said I could take a picture of his monitor screen, so I brought my camera the next time. I never thought of asking at the x-ray department. I go for an x-ray and followup visit in April and I'll ask.Everyone has a right to copies of their xrays and scans.
Very much a typical layman's concept! The false capsule is a tough structure and unlikely to be torn in a fall. What's more likely is that another ligamentous structure - there are many around the hip joint - was simply sprained.from what I've read here so far, to me it seems like might have stretched or damaged some ligaments in your fall and the "capsule" that developed to keep the ball in the cup is compromised and not doing its job.
Not shoot you down, Yeller! Maybe just ruffle your hair a bit!At least that's my layman's opinion but I'm sure Josephine will jump in and ...... shoot me down.
Don't know so much about it being a law as such but they should allow you to have them. But you do need to ask the right person! This would be the xray department although they do then have to get the surgeon's permission for you to have them. That should be no more than a formality though.Is that the law in the UK?

Oh well Yeller, at least you triedNot shoot you down, Yeller! Maybe just ruffle your hair a bit!
No pain. But when I stretch out my leg it squeaks and the squeak feels deep in the groin area.When laying on your back and lifting your leg straight up do you feel any symptoms of pain?
No - just a click now and again.When you stand and twist your hips slightly do you feel any stress or pain in your hip, femur, groin, etc?
Stiffness, popping straight away. But no real pain.Do you have any problems after sitting for a bit...then get up and go pain or weakness, squeaking, clicking or popping?
Yes, I think so..... The pop/clunk happens when my right leg is striding forward and my left (operation) leg is backwards towards the end of the stride. It happens as I change weight from the left leg to the right as the right leg goes forward and takes up the stride (I think that's how to describe it!).Have you been able to figure out if the popping/clunking feeling happens when your leg is in one position or is it happening in all positions while walking?
And very helpful questions.Just questions, as I was able to detirmine exactly what position my leg is in when the subluxation occures, which helped the Doctors out when evaluating and examining my hip.
