Hi Everyone, I haven't posted for a long time. In July 2008 I had a total mom right hip replacement after an a attempt to resurface but my bone was too soft. My recovery was fine but I still experienced severe groin pain much the same as pre-op. I still can't raise my right leg from a lying position and have to manually lift it into the car to drive. I can now only drive an automatic as my knees are ok. Hip is not. After all sorts of treatments including us guided injection, hip aspiration, ct scans, mri scans, xrays and finally, I had revision surgery and another new hip, this time a metal to ceramic in July 2011 I STILL HAVE THE SAME GROIN PAIN!!!!. My consultant has arranged for me to have an us guided injection into my groin next week. I feel I'm back where I started. has anyone else had a similar experience.
