I was wondering if anybody can help me I have been diagnoised with Fai and a cyst. After a little chat with my consultants PA she also told me that I had a strange overstretched/elongated labrum. Both the doctor of radiology and my consultant picked it up. Which has made my problem more complex . The consultant has called me in for a chat as to where we go from here. However I was wondering if anybody had heard of ths please. Not seeing the doctor for another three weeks. Thanks
I'm not sure if every unusual thing seen on an MRI is as important to pain/symptom as it may be to treatment options. It may not be as much an attempt to fit you to a procrustean bed as a way to avoid making things worse. Increased risk of osteoarthritis in an FAI patient is a big deal.
While the above study is an academic exercise for radiologists and surgeons, you could probably get a little more real-world support from this thread...
I try to keep within 90% of reading the whole thing, but it gets enough participation to be nearly impossible to digest. The people here have had every kind of diagnosis, prognosis, and I-don't-knowsis to cope with, and there's probably somebody out there reading with the same condition and actual treatment experience you will encounter. I'm surprised they didn't notice your thread, so give it a try and good luck!
