I guess you all know that we were thinking the worst where Hubby's problems were concerned and I thank you for your prayers because so far so good. The test showed no synovial "Big long word" but it did show cyst of some kind, but the doctor was not concerned, he wants Dennis to see another ortho doctor who does alot of work with the hip area. Maybe some type of arthroscopic procedure to check out the area for tears in the cartilage of the hip joint. He also recommended a scan of his spine only to rule out problems there. But so far so good!! Will keep you all posted as this "adventure" goes on.
