Gunnersboy,

I would be very interested to hear how you get on.
Who is your appointment with on Wednesday?
I am 5 weeks post arthroscopy for cartilage delamination due to dysplasia. It was a very easy surgery with just an overnight stay, and I have had hardly any post op pain. There are not many surgeons here in the UK that do hip arthroscopy, but if you have a good one, it is well worth trying the scope before any other major surgery. It is a long recovery due to the traction needed, and it is at least 3 months before returning to most activities, with improvements made up to six-nine months post op. If you have advanced arthritis or cartilage loss then an arthroscopy will not help you. If it is mild then cleaning up the joint can sometimes be enough, or if there are small areas of full thickness cartlage loss then microfracture can be performed to produce scar tissue that can act as false cartilage to bide time before a replacement is needed.
Hope this helps,
Good luck
Kate
