Torn Hip Ligament
101153 posted:
An MRI showed our 37 year old son with a torn ligament in the left hip.
He has had an guided injection directly into the hip socket with no results. He is in so much pain. Our local Orthopedic Surgeon has sent his Medical Records to some Doctor in Tennessee. Is this a rare diagnosis? He was told that this surgery was not done in our area of upstate South Carolina.

He has a history of bilateral hip dislocation from an auto accident when he was 19. He also had a complication of RSD at the time.
We are so afraid that this will come back. His local Dr. said this may be coming from that or from his playing Basketball.

I have a hip problem too if your son needs to talk to someone for emotional support, please let me know... Because I am looking for support groups myself... I need to find people I can talk to that can relate to me... Thanks, Emily
