I have had hip and back pain for years, going from Dr to Dr with noone taking me seriously. Finally, I get someone who believes me. I went through all of the proper procedures, MRI, MRI with contrast, x rays etc. and they find that I have a hip impingement and tears in the labrum. I had surgery in October and the "popping" of my hip is gone but the pain is almost worse than before. I am being told now that I have osteoarthritis. They will not do a full hip replacement because of my age. I have a hard time getting out of bed and getting through my day to day activities. I drive alot for my job and that is killing me. The surgeons office had me on lortabs 5/500 for a couple of months but that had little effect. Now I am being told "we arent giving you anything anymore" (I have tried NSAIDS but they make me sick) My PCP doesnt want to give me anything and I dont want to start "Dr Hopping" as before. What can I do? Pain management can be expensive and noone seems to want to help. I am at my wits end. Help...
