Now... I see a surgeon on Monday. Things are much worse. :-\
If you have impingement I just don't see how that won't get worse w/o having the impingement corrected. My boyfriend had that surgery 1 year ago. His take on my hip pain was, "oh wow, you don't have an impingement? get the labrum fixed - that's easy." Removing the impingement is more work / damage / recovery. Still, he's happy he did it.
Good luck. And I 2nd tigerchik - many have posted about this on the main forum.
