I am 49 years old, just diagnosed with arthritis in my right hip, some loose fragments of bone and cartilege, with a small labryl tear. The doc recommends a scope job. I read that there are sometimes complications with stretching the nerves during traction which can cause loss of sensation in the groin. For a married man, this is a big issue. Can anyone send me any information on complications they have had from a hip scope procedure? I am interested primarily in nerve damage, length of time to rebuild it, plus rehab time from the scope job. Thanks
