Marvy-Also, I still have a lot of pain on the side about 1 inch below my incision. There is a definite "bulge" on my thigh. My physical therapist was quite puzzled over this and really didn't know what it was. My doctor, just like with the LLD, doesn't seem to care. He said the implant looks good and doesn't really care about the tissue/muscle type concerns of mine. I'm thinking that the "bulge" on my thigh is around the bottom of where the stem would be, so XL1B/YL1B area? - not on the back of my leg, but just posterior to what would be the side-center of my thigh. Hope that makes sense? It is not red or discolored, it is just like a fluid-type bulge that is very sore - to the touch and I can't really lie down for very long on my side because of this. Does anyone have any ideas about this?
Wow! I have that exact same painful bulge in the same place on my left THR. I am in a lot of pain at the six-month point. My OS has no idea how to proceed. Like you said, it's soft-tissue pain- apparently "not his department".
