partial gluteus medius tear
Hi. I'm new to the site but am desperate to hear what others have done to help. I was diagnosed a few months ago.with a partial tear of my right gluteus medius and origin of vastus lateralis. I'm a 38 year old nurse that is not into sports. My ortho/sports medicine doc wanted me to do therapy. I've tried cortisone injections,nsaids, and various topical creams with no help from the pain. Therapy was going good for about a month but now tonight I'm in horrible pain again. Has anyone noticed their pain increases with higher humidity? I really just want to be pain free again! Has anyone had the surgery to repair and if so is the pain gone? My surgeon is reluctant to do surgery and said it would be open though I have read it can be done endoscopically. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm so tired of hurting!
