Arthroscopic Hip Labral Tear Repair - Gone wrong

Dr. Kocher's speciality seems to be elbows. Never the less I doctor I trust referred me to Dr. Kocher. And Dr. Kocher said he would repair my torn Labral and remove bone fragments in my hip (issues I incurred after a fall). I woke up post surgery and he informed me that he had also done a resculpting of the femoral neck. I have been in intense pain ever since. I wish he had told me this would be a possibility so I could have been included in the decision. In follow up when I communicated how much pain I was still in he said that I may just be in pain from now on.
