Yes -- this is alarming to me . Since I started this thread , I sought another physical therapist who is a bit more aggressive and more used to working with people with athletic aspirations and I will be gathering all applicable xrays and medical documents and getting the input of another surgeon . Not that my surgeon was bad - he has performed procedures on prominent national pro motocross athletes as well as kids from the college (Oklahoma football) ----- but those folks are in their early twenties, not late forties -- and I think something as potentially as serious as this necessitates having 2 or 3 different sets of eyes on it
