    Revision THR Hip and buttock pain'

    Well didn’t get the result I wanted to. The dr said I had the best surgeon even better then him. He thinks I just may have got as good as it will get. Sigh... he saw nothing wrong but was shocked at all the hardware due to my complicated case. He didn’t even think pt would help and neither did...

    Hi everyone, All went great. They took 45 mins w me to explain everything at the dispensary. I can’t use anything till my pain mgt appt the 31st. I wouldn’t want it on my drug screen. I do agree that I feel like I’m just putting on a band aid. But it’s all I have now. I know my back needs...

    @Layla with my new insurance it’s so expensive to go to specialists. But I don’t know where to go for second opinion. All this as set my depression spiraling. I should have my medical marijuana card next week so at least that’s better then oxy 4 times a day. I’m scared as my dr said just do...

    Happy Holidays everyone!!! He said basically it could take a long time for the muscles to come back and do the exercises at home. He said it’s my abducter muscle not working but everything mechanical is great. So unfortunately I’m stuck like this for who knows how long. I’m going for medical...

    Revision THR Hip and buttock pain'

    @Krista not at all. I can not balance on the operated leg at all. So I’m now wondering if there’s a tear of some sort. I have never been able to balance on that leg since surgery. Thank you for your responses. I’m hoping they can figure this out somehow.

    Revision THR Hip and buttock pain'

    @Krista thank you so much. I never gave soft tissue issue a thought. But now that it’s brought to my attention I will discuss w surgeon or have me referred. The hard part is being on Medicare now is an MRI will be so expensive but I can’t go on like this. Pain meds four times a day. Ugh. I just...

    Revision THR Hip and buttock pain'

    @SaraK thank you so much. Have never really thought about any tears and surgeon will only do X-ray when I see him. When I walk the opposite side shifts way up. I walk as though my operated leg is shorter then other but they measured it and it was fine. I also think after three surgeries and...

    Hi all again, I was wondering if anyone heard of anything like what I’m going through almost a year later. I’m just so upset I’m still in pain and can’t walk wo cane almost a year later. Could it really take the muscles that long to recover? I know I’ll know more next week but just wondering...
