Hi everyone just wondered if anyone has had similar experience. I have had hip pain for nearly two years and rec3ntky had an MRI scan. The results went to the physio and she rang me this morning to say they showed a large amount of fluid around my hip joint which she said could be infection or severe osteoarthritis and has referred me urgently to a consultant. Do you think I should be worried!
No, I don' t think you need to worry. I hope you get that appointment soon, so you don't have too long to worry.
I've never heard that excess fluid could be dangerous, just unpleasant. As far as I know a joint that has been over-taxed cushions itself with fluid, which shouldn't recur once it has been drained unless the strain is repeated.
I used to dance professionally, so I do know a little about joints and their reactions.
