over 5 years ago, I was injured at work while climbing into a firetruck. I'm 5'1 step was up to my mid waist. As I was climbing into the truck I felt severe pain in my back & hip area. Workman's comp issue. Dr did 3 arthroscopic labral tear surgeries. Dr's are saying they can't find anything wrong. Pain Management dropped me because They couldn't do anything more for me. It was suggested by one of the Orthopedic Dr's to have a hip replacement. Hip replacement surgeon gave a half A$$ed request to Worker's comp and it was denied. That Dr. said nothing was wrong with my bone structure yet I still have severe chronic pain in my hip. Anyone else have similar experience with this type of chronic pain., Pain is debilitating without meds. Can't take anti-inflamatories, aspirin, NSAIDs - due to allergy. I'm at my wits end, depression is bad as is pain. Any help is appreciated!
