A week ago from now, I felt slight arthritic pain in my left hip for a couple of minutes. I thought, what the hell I won't worry too much about it. I thought it was due to excess stress of driving and walking on the new hip. However, the same thing happened today but it lasted me about a couple of hours. In terms of magnitude, it was definitely higher than what it was last week. It only happens when I am walking or standing. While resting and sleeping, its perfectly fine. Any advises please guys? I am really freaking out to the extent that I breaking down in tears. I thought getting the surgery would put an end to it:rant:

I know someone posted a thread about arthritis pain after hip replacement, but somehow I can't find it anymore. Maybe the thread title has been changed by the poster. Please help me guys.

Thank you. I need all the sympathy I can get. I know it sounds shallow but the feeling of going through it again is more unbearable than the pain itself.

Btw, today is 7 weeks post OP

Tapan! Yes! Call your OS! Take some Advil, ice and elevate! Do you have any swelling? Have you been more active than usual? I doubt that its arthritic pain at this point unless its referred pain! (Coming from a different place!!!) Don't get yourself nuts, but do check it out! Good luck! (:)0)

When did you have your surgery? I know when I overdid it my hip complained rather loudly. It was the worst pain I had ever experienced in my hip. I had just done way too much and needed to calm down. I have a very old thread about it from last summer.
Have you called your doc yet?

Tapan,

I had some severe pains about 6 months out from each hip replacement. The first time, I really freaked out. I researched it and felt it was likely psoas tendonitis or something and by the time I thought about going in to the OS, it was gone. Basically, when I stood up in the morning, I had a severe pain in my groin (same spot as before surgery), but much more intense than usual dull arthritis pains. It would go away after a few minutes generally, but sometimes creep up later in the day. It lasted about a month each hip. The first one is now 11 months out and I haven't felt that pain since about April. Anyhow. Hope yours is the same issue as mine, because it will pass before long and be a distant memory!

Good luck.

D

No, no! Don't panic - is only soft tissue inflammation and will settle in time. Take some anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen to ease it. It's quite common and has no dire implications.
