FAI (Femoro-acetabular Impingement) & Karate

My personal experience with FAI and what you should know about this condition

No change…

I do not feel as though I have made any improvements in the past few months.  I have better mobility and less pain than just before the operations.  But probably not much less than, say, about 10-12 months before.   Hopefully, as a result of the surgeries I will not get much worse anytime soon, as the bones seem to be fitting together better now.  I suspect that my right side should be OK for possibly several decades but my left will likely require a total replacement before retirement age. :-(  There just isn’t all that much cartillage left, particularly on my left side.  There is going to be pain no matter what I do, at least until I get a replacement.  Hopefully there is more I can do and my condition will somehow improve.
