At 35 I had femoroplasty and labrum repair on both hips, with a bonus cartilage microfracture on the right. Turns out I had a 10mm circular patch of exposed bone in my right socket.Just had surgery to repair hip impingement + torn labrum. Not sure if anyone's been through that
I'm now 7 years out and I can't say that it's totally cured my discomfort. I've had ongoing issues with psoas tendinitis and the hip still hurts from prolonged activity and low hydration. However, it's slightly rewound and totally stabilized the progression of my pain, which was getting to the point where I couldn't sit upright in a chair for more than 10 minutes and I would have intermittent trouble sleeping. I'm still very glad I did the surgery. I'm sure I would have had a hip replacement years ago without it.Hopefully this isn't a decision I regret, but having an aching hip in my mid 30s every time I trained or played a sport finally got to be enough and I'm hoping this will be a big improvement. Long recovery though... 9 months till I can run again and 12+ to full-ish strength.
In terms of sports I avoid anything with a lot of jumping or repetitive impact (ixnay on mogul skiing, basketball, and running), but I could still practice ju jitsu just fine if it weren't for my knee issues.
