    THR acetabular cup problems

    Thank you Jaycey much appreciated. One more question, please. I have pain in the buttock that is relentless and often drives me up the wall. I had some pain before surgery but not as much as I do now. I went to a physiatrist who did MRI's of my Pelvic and Lumbar that were unremarkable for pain...

    THR acetabular cup problems

    Hello I have another consult with the surgeon via telehealth this Wednesday. I have a few questions that hopefully can be answered before then. 1- How long do revisions last? Can I expect 20 or more years? 2- How likely are infections? I understand they can usually be treated successfully with...

    THR acetabular cup problems

    I did go to a surgeon that Jamie mentioned, Dr. Melnic but I messed it up. At the time I had a flare up with my other hip and we scheduled surgery for the end of May (however, now all non-essential surgery is postponed at Mass General where he practices). When alone after briefly discussing my...

    THR acetabular cup problems

    Hello again. Hope everyone is keeping safe. It's seeming like "Groundhog Day" mixed with "Twilight Zone". I hope this ends sooner than later. I finally decided to have revision surgery my hip. The pain and discomfort has become unbearable. I'm having pain in the front of my leg - rectus femoris-...

    Thanks for not forgetting me Pat how are you doing?? I hope recovery is as expected if not well. Can you exercise without pain yet? Are you satisfied with the results? Would you still recommend it or is it too soon? For me, I'm a mess. Nothing is resolved. Can you answer or comment of a few...

    Jamie thanks for your support. If I have a revision, I will go to one of the surgeons in Boston you mentioned but it will be a last resort and I'll have my antenna up this time. Hip4life - Pat, did the surgeon say how much strength you would lose with a tendon release. Where did you have this...

    THR acetabular cup problems

    Silly Me - I expect doctors to understand what is going on medically. I went to a surgeon who does revision surgery who wasn't interested. He said the prosthetic is in alignment -the end. Previously, I was told the cup being raised is responsible for pain in the groin pain and the leg, esp when...

    THR acetabular cup problems

    Jamie - Thanks for the list at Mass General. The list of 70 best Surgeons from Beckersspine is from 2011! I really don't know how to figure out who might be best. I'm usually uncharacteristically timid (scared) and deferential with surgeons. Are there questions you would recommend that I...

    THANK YOU. I've been searching in the dark. That's the list I'm looking for.

    THR acetabular cup problems

    There is one a short distance away in Springfield, MA (Baystate Hospital) but don't think it is renown. Mass General in Boston, MA and Yale New Haven are maybe more reputable. I'm not sure is there is one in Hartford, CT that is worth of checking out but it is fairly close. Any Suggestions...

    THR acetabular cup problems

    Thank You all for being supportive and helpful. Things aren’t going so well and don’t know what to do. I met with Dr. Shekhman who does revisions. He said the angle of the prosthetic was acceptable and that making the cup flush with the pelvis would be problematic with the ball not staying in...
