I am 3 years and 4 months into my new (left) hip. It is doing great! But as I have stated in previous post(s) my right hip and knee have been giving me problems. I finally had my MRI … finally … and although I haven’t been able to speak with the Doc yet (next week), I was able to download the report. If the meeting with my doc is as bad as the report sounds….then I have to say without reservation….I’m a freakin’ badass! Am I allowed to say that on my own Blog? All I know is that I am relieved that it is not all in my head and there is a reason why my performances have dropped off this year. Now to get it fixed….
Here is the report…
- Complex process involving the right hip, with a combination of dysplasia, CAM and pincer type FAI likely contributing to the appearance. Large acetabular rim fracture fragments are likely a function of excessive rim stresses related to a degree of dysplasia (acetabular rim syndrome: Klaue, Durnin, Ganz. J Bone Joint Surg Br. 1991 May;73(3):423-9), now displaced and contributing to a pincer type impingement, with large femoral head neck junction bump.
- Extensive labral tear from the 3 o’clock position anteriorly to the 9 o’clock position posteriorly.
- Full-thickness chondral damage along the anterior superior and superior lateral femoral acetabular articular surfaces.
- Iliopsoas tendinosis and bursitis.
- Severe osteitis pubis with secondary cleft signs bilaterally suggesting an aponeurotic plate injury. Osteitis pubis and femoral acetabular impingement are commonly associated.
- New full-thickness chondral damage to the medial compartment with associated extensive subjacent marrow edema to the medial tibial plateau and medial femoral condyle. Small subchondral stress fracture suggested of the posterior weight-bearing surface of the medial femoral condyle.
- Degenerative free edge tearing of the posterior horn and posterior body of the medial meniscus, in the area of prior partial meniscectomy.
