Yes, my left hip was a replaced 5 weeks ago....the right one 3 years ago...and now both IT bands are hurting. The right one was 3/4" too long and now the surgeon added 3/4" to the left hip so I would be "level".
I don't know how I can do the recommended exercise if I am not to go over center...
I am so glad I found your post. I am about 4 weeks out and still using my walker. I tried my cane yesterday, but found I was still limping very badly...which in turn, makes me have a back ache. I thought that by now I should be able to use the cane and in a few more weeks, be able to walk...
The other hip replacement is on April 12th. This time I am hoping he can level me out to match the other one that was screwed up by another surgeon!.... 3/4 " too long.
Good luck to the rest of you who are replacing in April~~
I just was reading some old posts, getting caught on my friends from a former replacement.....and saw that your leg length was corrected! This is what I am hoping for...the last one made me 3/4" too long, so hope some can be added to the next one.....April 12th.
Well, I hate to admit I am coming back on the forum.....I had a THR, TKR, and now April 12th, I will have the other hip replaced :-(
BUT my main concern from the other replacement is the narcotics that they give me gives me EXTREME nausea and makes me vomit, have sweats, weakness, etc. Has...
Have either of you had your leg lengths measured? I was 3/4" longer on the THR and it has given me considerable trouble....and am over 2 years out. I hope you get this resolved because I know the pain/struggles of walking "un-even".
Sorry you are having problems with your IT Band.....but I know only too well what you are going through, only mine has been over 2 years following my hip replacement...due to 3/4" LLD that he "graciously gave me"~~~ GURRRRR! It bothers me far more than my knee did before I got it...
I have spinal stenosis, as well as buldging disks and a cyst....so I have had problems with my back before, but it seems odd that it would come back after surgery when I had been getting along so well.
PS...Does anyone know if there is a "back" forum like this one for joints?
I had never thought of a connection until I heard another lady in PT say she was having this problem also.
I have had lumbar problems and had it pretty well controlled by injections, but since I had the spinal for my TKR, it has been giving me fits. Could the spinal have something to do with...
That was such good news. I hope I can have such a good report when I get to my 3 month. I am in my 8th week...knee is doing great...or so I think....but my back is really acting up now...that will be next. I'll be a bionic woman before long because I had a THR 2 years ago and three fusions...
I made it also~~
I had my TKR on Monday (3-1) and so far, so good. Only taking some Tramadol as needed. I had my hip done two year ago and that surgeon made me 3/4 inch too long.....needless to say I found another surgeon. Loved him and the joint facility is the best!
