I immediately made an appointment with my surgeon, who believes the source of my pain could be bursitis (even though that isn't where the pain was felt when I moved my leg that certain way). I am scheduled to have an ultrasound guided injection tomorrow. But this is far from my first rodeo, I know this is basically a formality to see if it relieves any of the pain or not. To me it just delays finding the true source of what the hell happened when I had that sudden pain. Honestly it feels like it did before the surgery right now and I'm kind of freaking out.
The background on this injury is that I used to do a lot of running races and sprint triathlons. Back in 2011 I was working with a personal trainer who thought sprinting cold no warm up was a good idea and my hamstring tore. From there it was a downward spiral of tendonitis, bursitis, and then finding the labral tear a couple years later. It didn't cause me too much grief as long I managed the inflammation, until I did CrossFit for a couple of years. I stopped training like a psycho for about a year before the pain became unmanageable last fall.
I am a nurse and in the Army Reserves so being hurt for this extended time is extremely stressful. This could seriously impact my career(s), not to mention I have been inactive now for so long I'm losing my mind. I am considering a second opinion for treatment options.
Any thoughts, advice, personal experiences with this?? Thank you so much in advance!
