This is Dr. David

the treatment depends on how evere the labrium tear is

for mild tears, you can have conservative management with steroid injections and anti-inflammatories and physical therapy

for more severe tears which do not heal, arthroscopic surgery might be needed to fix the tear.

it sounds like your tear has not healed in 6 months

you should see an orthopedic surgeon about surgical repair options for your tear

your GP will have to refer you to see a orthopedi surgeon.

have you asked your GP to see an orthopedic surgeon?
