I've recently had a diagnosis of a Femoroacetabular impingement ( pincer)(FAI) and have of course taken to the net to see what its all about and what can be done. A lot of the information I've read about (On these forums as well ) seems to be mostly in the negative.
I'm having to consider the operation and I've yet to see my local Orthopedics surgeon but word on the ground is my local hospital wont fund this operation and I'll be offered Physio. From what I've read Physio just cant cure this problem as bone needs to be shaved off. It looks like I'll have to reach under the mattress and get some cash out and go private.
I'm desperate to hear from people who have had a successful Arthroscopy operation to correct this in the last 2 or 3 years as I understand this is now a common operation and if so did you
have a positive result and are you now able to run as normal again?
