I am a Registered Nurse working at a local hospital since 1980 to the present. I have not had Surgery until Right Rotator Cuff Surgery.
As a year-round cyclist and ultra endurance mountain bike racer, it was very difficult to deal with an early season collar bone fracture I sustained in a crash.
Femoracetabular impingement at the right hip joint. My symptoms included general hip pain following exercise, sharp hip pain during certain hip movements and hip discomfort when sitting for longer than 30 minutes.
On April 29th 2010, I was diagnosed with osteochondrosis and osteochondral defects of the left knee, the longest being 3 cm by 2 cm (requiring May 5th, 2010' surgery).
I cannot recall an exact moment when I knew I had done something wrong to my hip. The pain came one day and wouldn’t go away. It became so bad that I wasn’t able to pitch more than an inning without being in unbearable pain.
Torn right shoulder labrum I couldn't throw or tackle while playing football. I couldn't do simple things such as putting a backpack on or lift anything heavy with just my right arm. I was not able to get a full range of motion of my shoulder and it was painful to even attempt.
I suffered from a torn labrum in my right hip, and eventually underwent arthroscopic surgery (hip impingment) on July 22nd, 2011.
My most sincere thank you goes to you for giving me back the quality of life that I most desire. One that is extremely active, almost to a fault. Summer 2008 the pain I had been experiencing in my hip began to worsen.
I first messed up my left knee my sophomore year of football and it seemed like it healed during the offseason, so I continued to play on my left knee my junior year of football and then it 'buckled' on me like it did in the past so that is when the trainer and myself knew something was wrong.
Falling is a part of horseback riding. On July 6th, 2009 I had a not-so-bad fall, landed on my feet, and thought everything was ok. I had a bit of hip pain that evening, but kept on riding.
