This has become a massive problem for me. Originally done due to a torn labrum and discovery of hip displasia on the right side. I got talked into the Osteotomy on my pelvis, and have suffered for it ever since. The Doc who performed this surgery has moved far away from my location, and is really the only one who would know what to do. Anyway, I now suffer immense stiffening of the area, no matter what I attempt to do, there is no relief. PT had done nothing, and I weaned myself off of Narcotics 9 months ago (was taking them since 2010, I felt it was enough)this pain has spread to the other hip and across my groin area, down my right leg to the knee, and I have 0 energy to do anything. I get fatigued extremely fast, and as motivated as I am, I get restricted by this. Walking a mile will leave me bed ridden for days. X-ray shows nothing obvious, MRI is difficult to decipher (have 2 metal screws still in my pelvis) CT scan is no help either. I've gone to 3 different Orthopedics, who are not any help, where their expertise is not in this general field and continually guess as to what is wrong. I'm reaching the end of a rope, as it has been 6 years of struggling living with this. Can't work, can't exercise, and have gained 30 lbs over time that I don't need. Can't sit comfortably at all, especially driving, and struggle tying my right shoe. I'm uploading the original X-ray so to show post surgical outcome. Anyone has an answer, then I'd like to hear it. Muscles are extremely stiff and there is a clicking and popping in front of the pelvic right side with minimal movement. Labrum is NOT re-torn, I remember that feeling and this is not that.
