|Someone with femoral retroversion could not sit like this.|
The surgery to correct this involves an open surgery where a huge, giant, long incision is made down the top of the thigh. The femur is broken and then pinned back together. The surgery sounds scary and nasty. I am going to talk to a surgeon about whether he thinks I will need a surgery to correct my retroversion. I would rather just do one aggressive surgery to correct everything at once. That includes the retroversion, impingement. blister and labral tears. There is a possibility that if I just I have the impingement surgery, although I will still have femoral retroversion, I will no longer be in severe pain. Another possibility is that the surgeon could over-correct the retroversion, just leaving me with the opposite problem.
A second diagnosis I talked about previously is the blister in my labrum. The labrum has come detached in the middle of my acetabulum, like a blister.

Okay, just wanted to keep you up to date on the growing complexity of my hip problem.
