In April 2021 I was officially diagnosed with bilateral femeroacetabuar impingement (FAI) with bilateral CAM deformity.
I also have gluteal tendinopathy with associated mild trochanteric and subgluteal bursitis.
Early anterosuperior joint degeneration & chronic anterosuperior labral tear(s)
This was a huge blow to my progress after 3 difficult surgeries in 4 years for Deep Infiltration Endometriosis/Adenomyosis
You'd think life would have given me a break.. but no.. off we go again
I am slowly getting my head around what this diagnosis entails especially with the Endometriosis
I can forgive the lack of knowledge in the Endometriosis/Adenomyosis department... but seriously I have been in some kind of physical therapy & orthopedics for over 20 years (NHS & Private) & no one even considered for a moment I could have had this..
One Yoga teacher ... Peter Blackaby picked up on my pelvic imbalances back in 2012, ironic he was a trained Osteopath
Andrea Lecky - (Osteopath & natural therapies) at Weybridge Surrey gets total credit for this diagnosis, she sent me to Prime Health for 3T MRI's & then gave me Professor Schilders details
