Hello all, I'd like to start by saying that I've seen a couple threads on this and it has me excited for my future (as previously I was nervous about my ongoing condition). Secondly there is a lengthy backstory if you wish to skip to the end I fully understand! I'm 38, and have already had my left hip rebuilt (my words). Actual procedure was anterior labrum tear, micro fracture, and cadaver tissue for tendon or ligament. Nov 8th 2016. Unfortunately at that time all I remember hearing the OS say was by the end of the surgery and post op PT that I could get back to my passion of hockey (goalie), and snowboarding! In actuality it was almost 3 months before I was cleared for touch down weight of the left leg and unfortunately ran out of savings and ended up back to work (self employed electrician) way too soon to get bills paid. Flash forward a year or so and my right hip and lower back are so inflamed that I've shut down my business, my wife is now supporting our family of 5. I pulled the trigger and went to my primary care dr who did a basic evaluation of the symptom and by end of visit (paraphrasing: no more construction work or much else until you fix your hips, by either rebuild or replace). Now to my question, sorry for lengthy back story! My PCP insisted on me finding a OS that will work on my age group with LOTS of experience in my age group. Problem is that when I get to web sites or the Dr's I'm researching there is NO INTELL on how many they perform and the line I keep getting is "make an appointment with the dr and you can ask him then". This doesn't work on many different levels for me. Expense, time, and pain level I've been living with for over 2 years. Any suggestions on how to proceed? Basics of me: -38 male, in great shape less the hips (and now lower back, I feel is related to hips). - Living close to Boulder co, but willing to travel ANYWHERE in Co as long as my BCBS insurance is accepted. (Rebuild was done in Aurora at cu hospital, a fantastic facility) Dr said something to the effect of this needs to be done 2 months ago, lol. I replied with got some winning logo numbers for me? Anything I missed I can reply to. Thank you all for your help in advance!
