So not surprisingly after arguing and basically bullying my GP (wasn't my regular GP) the results are in and I have the same problem as last surgery. A "mild" tear of the labrum. The tear is vertical and as we do not have my records from my surgeon from last time I don't know if it's in the same place as last time.
Last surgery was about 3 years ago. Now I also have a "mild" cist on the ball of the hip.
Nothing mild about the pain I have been feeling. I can't get into see my surgeon until the end of November. I am on a cancellation list but I am not looking forward to the wait.
So more expensive osteo treatments to keep the muscles loose and help me sleep and now waiting to see my actual GP for painkillers to help with this.
I HATE taking anything so I usually just push through the pain. Can't do it this time so unfortunately drugs it is.
Hopefully it isn't something that makes me drowsy so I can still take them when I am at work!!
And vent over

SportsTrainer, I hope you won't have to wait as long. I don't like pain meds either, I've had topo many adverse reactions! I tolerate pain as long as I can before taking even Tylenol. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers, that you'll get in earlier and it will be successful! 🙏🌼

Thanks for the support FlappysLady81.
Still opted for the weaker ones. I'm on Cellebrex during the day and Tramedol at night as the Tramedol makes me drowsey. GP just offered as he knows my aversion to medication

Sportstrainer, I hope for your sake that there is a cancellation soon. Nobody should suffer for extended periods of time when you've got your diagnosis and it seems that surgery is going to be the answer. In glad you are not beating yourself up for saying you'll take the drugs. No use being in overbearing pain if you don't have to. I will be sending positive vibes your way and hope for a speedy and complete recovery. 🙏🏻🌻
