Last week I wrote about the pop singer Lady Gaga and her painful joint condition that forced her to cancel a few shows of her current tour. Well, it appears the situation is worse that expected.
Lady Gaga is expected to have hip surgery to repair a torn labrum in her hip, CNN is reporting. She has therefore cancelled the remainder of her tour to recover from the surgery.
The labrum of the hip is a piece of cartilage that courses around the socket of the joint. It serves to add stability to the joint by deepening the socket. A hip labrum tear can cause hip pain, clicking in the hip joint, and a feeling of hip instability and weakness.
