I went through the pain and suffeing of hip/leg pain while living in Arizona- not much help with Dr's there. When I moved back to the Boston area I was sent to New England Baptist- Dr McCarthy in 2004. Dr McCarthy and staff were great. I was diagnosed and actually saw the torn labrum during the radioactive dye injection procedure that Dr McCarthy developed. I did go through the surgical procedure. at NE Baptist Hospital.
At that time my weight was high, 240 lbs- could not execercise. I was suffering from sleep apnea and severe leg pains when the labrum tore.
After the surgery, I was able to get back into an active lifestlye. My weight dropped back under 200 lbs. I got active in riding the Pan Mass Challenge bicycle fundraiser for Dana Farber Cancer Research. I am now getting ready to run in the Boston Marathon on April 16th- one month before turning 50 years young (good training run for the Pan Mass Challenge in August.
What can I say :)
