    THR 10 mo post THR, potential loosening, need advice.

    In the last two weeks I had both mild and very bad days. Today I had my CT scan. No contrast, but they did move the leg into different positions to see if the implant is fixed well. I asked the technician if they will see if there are any muscular / nerve issues via this test. She said no. This...

    I am close to giving up mentally. The pain is awful, it comes back every day after I get up on my feet and my mind cannot imagine it could be something that can be solved by physio :( From Friday to Monday it moved completely out of my front thigh and into the side of my hip joint an buttock...

    I saw my surgeon today. Gave her the full history of the pain but she was not taking notes, I suppose it doesn't matter much without further tests. I didn't have pain yet today when I had the visit, so she saw me in a great shape, walking confidently and with no limp. She kept repeating that...

    Oh what a confusing week it has been so far! On Monday I got a letter from my rheumatologist who ordered the xray my OS later so gloomly summarised in her patient notes. I was staring at it with disbelief for over a minute, as it said no pathological changes were found. I was resisting it, but...

    Thank you all again for your replies. This forum makes me feel less alone in this situation! I don't even try to make people around me understand how big of a mental undertaking the return of chronic pain is if you have been dealing with it for decades. I have been doing a bit of breath work...

    I am back to icing in the evenings and see some temporary relief with it. Wish I could do it throughout the day as well, but it's not possible with work.

    Thank you for all of your replies <3 I've spent the last two days with tears in my eyes. Mainly I'm praying the xray is wrong, and that my implant is all snug in there. My secondary hope is that even if there is some small spacing, my symptoms are not related to it. The only part of the...

    Thank you! Change of topic to "10 months after THR, potential loosening of implant stem, need advice" would help, thanks again.

    Thank you, I get it, I don't expect medical advice. I was more so hoping to hear if people have had cases of small spacing between implant and bone that didn't mean / result in the diagnosis of loose implant. Grasping hard for hope over here.

    Hello again. I would love some advice from you all. - I am 38yo, 9.5 months from my surgery (posterior, cement-less), was completely pain free during the summer. Enjoying vacations, camping, biking, all without pain for the first time in my adult life. - End of September I started having on and...

    I am getting more and more restless with the wait for the call appointment with my OS next week., and there is another 20 days to go before I see her in person. I went for a swim today, something I haven't done since summer. I could feel the pain at around lvl 4 while swimming, walking back...

    Thank you for the reassurance :) I thought as well immediately after the fall that everything was okay, and I am trying to hold on to this notion. It's so easy to let doubt in when it comes to health :flabber:

    Thank you :) I've been looking at those as well, they are definitely the more sensible option. I'm dreaming of really warm, comfy winter shoes with studs on the sole, and a good ergonomic sole for my feet. I'm the type that once I have an idea in my head, it is hard to compromise :wink: But I've...

    THR 10 mo post THR, potential loosening, need advice.

    This morning I went for an xray of the hip (ahead of my call with the OS scheduled for next week), and 10 hours later I took a big fall on the icy pavement... I have been so so careful in the winter weather, walking very slowly everywhere. I went to take the trash out and on my way back, I...

    I'm writing this update to unburden myself a little, I know no one here will diagnose me but I am just having a crappy day, so here it is. I mentioned a month ago that I was having an on and off pain in the operated leg. Everything seems to be getting worse. Two weeks ago 5k steps per day...

    Hello! It has been 7,5 months since my THR and end of September to mid October I was a lot less active, even walking very little due to work commitments and overwhelm. I notice now that when I do housework for a few hours, which includes for example carrying a heavy laundry basket, I get some...

    Hello. Just popping in to say I am going to cycle some intense hills to and from work tomorrow (but only 20km), please keep your fingers crossed for me and my hip :D It's been 5,5 months since surgery now and I have forgotten about having this funny thing in my thigh until last Friday after...

    Hi All, hope you are having a good day! I have a question about sauna. I'm nearly 4,5 months after surgery, and have been swimming a lot as it's helping my chronic stress and anxiety. There is a Swedish stone sauna available at the pool, and I read that using a sauna 3-4 times a week is also...
