    My girlfriend had it done a few years ago. Make sure you do the stretching exercises they recommend before the surgery, they say that really helps speed up the recovery. Took about two months for a full recovery, best thing she ever did.

    You should look into getting stem cell injections. There are doctors that do this treatment and will advise if it is worthwhile in your case.

    There are videos on YouTube that will show the treatment and explain it.

    Stem cells are going to be the future of medicine.

    I like to run..... I'd feel some in the hip joint, take some Advil, back off the running for a few days and it would get better. This has gone on for about two years. (I'm 52)

    Now I'm noticing a twinge and some pain when I ride my Harley and go to the foot brake.

    So, yup, I'm interested in hearing the comments.

    I think Mark Cuban had double. Of course when you're a billionaire and don't have to worry about missing work or the co-pay it probably makes the decision easier.

    I had arthroscopic hip surgery at 27 to fix a few issues from playing sports. The worst part is not being allowed to walk on it for a few weeks. They do a nerve block with thin 6" thin needle right above the hip. That shit takes forever to wear off. Right before surgery they gave me an instant release oxycontin and a extended release oxycontin and then fentanyl during the surgery. Youll be out of your fucking mind for a bit but it's worth it. DO THE PT EXACTLY HOW THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBES IT. No short cuts.
