    Hi Suzanne,
    Sorry I have to post in random places, I don’t know how to just end you a message. Anyway, my ITBS, Runner’s knee turned bursitis, turned possible hip fracture turns out to be a Labral Tear. I am freaking out! Would much rather have a fracture. So ortho says arthroscopic surgery is the only thing for tears. Do you have any experience with this or heard any stories? Any advice? I really don’t want surgery, but also want to run again someday. I just can’t believe that a tear can’t heal without surgery. Ahhhhhhh!

      I’ve heard of several people that have had this, had the surgery, and then were able to get back to running after rehab. Are you on facebook? If so, become a fan of the Run Like a Mother: The Book page and post about the labrum tear there. You will get great feedback from runners (who are also moms!) who went through this and can give you tips/advice. I think I read that it can heal without surgery but that is very rare; in almost every single case, surgery is required. I feel so bad, but now you at least have a REAL diagnosis after all those months of nothing. Good luck and keep me posted!!
