Hi all. I had a THR right side in September 2018. I walked quite well bearing in mind my left hip is bad and I'm having injections asap the past few weeks I have been in agony in my femur/hip and am back on crutches. I'm limping like I did prior to surgery. Please advise

Is it possible for the femur to be loose. My hip was uncemented

Thank you x

You are in the UK, I suggest an appointment with your GP or a visit to A&E.

Hi @fifi59 and :welome: to the forum.
Your brief description does sound terribly concerning and I do hope you have contacted your surgeon.

I was wondering how your early recovery went...is this all new or a worsening condition?
We can ask @Josephine, our nurse director to weigh in but she will want to leave you some important questions regarding the exact site of your pain and your daily activities leading up to this.
I'm sorry you ate dealing with this.

Oh gosh, how worrisome. I will say that as I waited for my second hip to be replaced that it began causing a lot of discomfort in my first THR and it was disheartening. But never enough to put me on crutches. Hopefully you can get some answers soon.
