Postby fozzie54 » Wed Nov 14, 2012 4:17 pm

Hi to all..went to the Dr yesterday and had Xrays..result of Xray was Ostoephytic Lipping..anyone had this..its in my hip joint and Tibia..or Fib forgot the name
of thigh bone.

I used to train al the time..then retired from work lived overseas and of course no bike for 3 years.
I think it is from not riding has aggreviated this..

Ostoephytic lipping is just an appearance on X-ray. Osteophytes are associated with common osteoarthritis and you can't blame it on riding or not riding. Blame it on aging!
