Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

X ray eval frequency
« on: June 29, 2011, 01:19:39 AM »
Hi,
My x rays have been evaluated via e mail by top BHR surgeons. Based upon x ray,  I have been advised to hold off a bit since I was in an early arthritic phase although MRI results show chondral and labral damage.
In the near future, I will be a candidate for a BHR.
Pain/discomfort wise, I am getting gradually worse.

 MRI Results

FAI- CAM
 chronic non displaced tear of anterior labrum with ganglion cyst
 Anterior labrum is degenerated with no tear
 Superior posterior labrum is not torn
Focal 1.27cm (anterior - posterior) full thickness chondral loss
over rthe superior and posterior superior parafoveal margin of the
femoral headassociated with no acute proud subchondral bony remodeling 12:00 - 2 PM sagittal view
 Adjacent cartilage demonstrates moderate to high grade partial thickness chondral thinning

Questions:
I agree with the surgeon of my status so do I need to consult with him now or wait until sypmtoms worsen?
I just had an initial x ray and MRI this month; how long should I wait until getting another x ray? 6 months, 1 yr?

Thanks

depends on your pain threshold i guess ...
maybe u should have them every 3 mnths and listen to your body, it will tell you when its time im sure ..

I guess I can ask my physiatrist prior to my September consult with Dr Su.
The consensus I am getting is between 6-12 months unless symptoms dramatically increase.
Thanks

Hey, GibleT88,

I have had x-rays every two months since my surgery on November 8, 2010.  Pain has continued and I want to make sure that I am healing properly 9 months out... I know, really unusual.

How did you send the x-rays to the other doctors?  CD?  E-mail attachment, and if so, how did you do this?  I am trying to find the answer on this website, I am sure I saw it once of twice...

Feel better!

Hopsital for Special Surgery provided me with a CD of all of my x rays and MRIs.
I saved the x ray on my computer and e mailed it to the surgeons.

Some people that photos of the x ray under bright lite

Pat has some info on the x-ray deal here.

http://www.surfacehippy.info/xrayconversion.php

Some offices will have the whole package (software and image) on a disk for you, others will be old school and simply have one plastic hard copy that they will loan to another office.
