Not looking for specific medical advice for my hip issue, just a little hope for the future
Any other fellow cyclists who have had either a labral tear and/or Ischiofemoral impingement?
Was your surgery successful and how long was your journey to recovery and more importantly back into cycling?
I look forward to reading about your experiences
Thanks -- Another crazy cat lady who desperately wants to get back on her bike...

can't help on recovery times, but from memory it seemed to only be a few months before running (easily) again.

Arthroscopic. Surgery was OK, bruising and swelling, but nothing bad pain wise. I think i was meant to be on crutches 6 weeks, lasted maybe 2-3 weeks, but I'd try and stick to the surgeons advise!
In my case I was back on the bike after 2 days, just everyday 10 minutes of spinning with no resistance for the first 6 weeks. During week 7 I went for an outdoor ride ( up the 1-20 ), it was ok, but not great. Did a mix of trainer/ indoor rides and easy outdoor rides for another 6 weeks, after which I felt pretty good. After 16 weeks I'd say back to almost 100%
Surgery seems to have been successful. The impingement has been removed, my alignment on the bike is better and I am not getting pain in the hip socket like I was before. I did manage to put on around 4 kgs though, and that was hard to get rid of!
Unfortunately, when I finally got back to a decent weight and riding form I had a stack, broke a few ribs, collar bone and fractured the neck of the femur- now have 3 screws in it. (Same leg as surgery). This has been tougher than the FAI surgery to recover from, a bit more damage, longer recovery time off the bike, and some muscular deactivation ( mostly glutes) which is proving hard to get strength back into again. About 90% now though, did my first 100k ride 2 weeks ago and did a 200K ride last weekend, so going OK finally. The last 12 months has been challenging bike wise!
Best of luck..
