Hi Cole! Welcome to HW/CP! Sorry to hear that you are having to deal with these hip issues, especially at your age - that stinks. I don't have much experience with hip pain, but I believe there are several members here that do, and I'm sure they will be around soon enough. Being that it is a holiday weekend, it may be a little slow around here - just don't want you thinking that you are being ignored if you don't get any responses right away! Even though we are not medical professionals and can't give actual medical advice, there is a wealth of real-life experience among our members - and we really do care.
I am glad to hear that your doctor is not recommending surgery at this point - physical therapy can work wonders, and I really hope that it can help you. I do know that water-therapy can be very useful with joint injuries - you may want to ask your doc about
Anyway, I just wanted to say Hi! and welcome you to HW! Others will be around soon enough.....Have a peaceful day.
