I am a 32 year old kiwi girl who has hip pain. It started with an accident at the gym over 2 years ago. I’ve had surgery to clean up a torn ligament and some torn cartalidge. The surgery was semi-successful as I am better than I was pre-op however I am now suffering from chronic hip pain which is having quite an impact on my life. I used to be very active and I feel like this hip pain is holding me back. Its painful, frustrating and tiring. I’ve been told I have mild Cam/Pincer FAI + mild dysplasia, but the pain I am in is most likely to be caused by the initial injury and surgery.
Chronic pain can be very isolating and I can tell my friends and family are a little bored of hearing about the hip pain. This blog is just a space for me to process what I am going through and share my experiences with others who may be in a similar situation.
