My husband was recently diagnosed with HO. The Dr said surgery is only an option if he is experiencing pain...or serious symptoms. She did not suggest any treatment options.
My ? is he is 9 yrs post this is just presenting and it is in his left hip...he has lost 10 lbs recently in an effort to be healthier...and does exercise regularly..also has started drinking protein shakes as meal replacements. COuld any of this have contributed to this appearing now?
Also, he has a circular red (size of 50 cent piece) spot every night when he goes to bed...sleeps on that side part of the night so it is red when he turns..it blanches when I press on it. But I am afraid it will become something worse...
Any info appreciated...
Thanks
