    THR Gluteus Medius Detachment

    I am currently laid in my hospital bed after abductor muscle surgery yesterday. I had the minimus and medius sown back on the the greater trochanter. The operation was 2.5 hours but went well. However I am in so much pain! It is worse than the THR! I am on top of pain meds but am dreading the...

    THR Gluteus Medius Detachment

    Thank you for your kind replies- it really does help. I saw my surgeon last night and he is going to do an open muscle reattachment and removal of cerclage wires from a previous fracture. I’m hoping 3rd time lucky with surgery! He told me yesterday it would be around 8 weeks. Has anyone had this...

    THR Gluteus Medius Detachment

    Good afternoon- I have just had MRI result confirmation that the gluteus minimis has detached from the greater trochanter. Has anyone had surgery to fix this before? All the info online is for the gluteus medius. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    THR Gluteus Medius Detachment

    Could I please change my thread to gluteus medius detachment. I have seen my surgeon this evening following an MRI scan. During my THR my greater trochanter was fractured and fixed with wires. This was on 25th feb and I’m still having to use crutches. This evening I was told the MRI showed that...

    THR Gluteus Medius Detachment

    Hi all, 13 weeks post surgery and slowly recovering but taking a long time to gain strength back my muscles must be so weak after such a long time on crutches! So can’t wait to get rid of them! Has anyone else struggled with hip pain on the opposite leg to the operated one? I’m presuming it’s...

    Fractured Neck of Femur/Pinning Hip Pinning Recovery Advice

    Hi- I know exactly how you feel. I also suffered a fractured neck of femur at 44 suddenly in a slip and as a gym goer and very active person it knocked me for 6. I was exactly like yourself and was very conscious of AVN that I got back to the gym and in hindsight probably over did it! I had a ct...

    THR Gluteus Medius Detachment

    Thanks @Jockette for adding to previous thread (I am not very good with technology!). I have probably overdone it a bit if I’m honest but was just worried with it being a new/ different pain not the standard aches we get used to living with! I will ice and rest and give it a couple of days to...

    THR Gluteus Medius Detachment

    I am 8 week post op and have been slowly recovering. However this weekend I have a new pain in my thigh just below my incision which radiates down the knee. The pain becomes worse if I touch it and I couldn’t possibly lie on it. It is a burning pain which can catch me off guard as a sharp pain...

    THR Gluteus Medius Detachment

    Hi @Mojo333 thank you and yeah you are right to re name the thread thank you . I fractured my left neck of femur October 2020 and had a DHS and compression screw inserted. After 14 months non union was concluded and I was told the fracture had collapsed and I would need a THR. This was...

    THR Gluteus Medius Detachment

    Anyone had a fracture during hip replacement surgery? If so did it hinder your recovery? Here mine has been fixed with cerclage wires. Any advice would be appreciated as I am 5 weeks post op and unable to walk without 2 crutches and pain!

    THR Pain killers

    Hi @Redtram62, I am 4.5 weeks post op on THR and am still using two crutches as I have pain and a limp. I don’t imagine not using them in the next few weeks! I think the biggest thing to take from this forum is that everyone’s recovery is so different and you need to listen to your body. I hope...

    THR Gluteus Medius Detachment

    Thanks @PolarIce - there’s so much info to wade through you don’t know what to believe! That’s what I like about this forum. You can discuss things with people that have experienced them not just read about things . If you can send that would be great and private message is fine although I do...
