I had a right anterior hip replacement 6 months ago. I was doing really well when I went on a trip and did a lot of walking. For the past 3 days, I've had groin pain on the "good" side. I keep thinking it was from overdoing the walking. But why would the pain be on the good side? Anyone have any ideas about this?:sigh:
Well, you are allowed to have things occur that are unrelated to your surgery, you know!

I think you've got a groin strain which otherwise means you've strained your adductor muscles as illustrated here

You can deal with this in various ways
1. take anti-inflammatories and maybe with some Tylenol
2. rest them and do some stretches (google adductor stretches)
3. go see a chiropractor who will apply some massage and acupressure to get the muscles spasm to ease off or you can do it yourself! Acupressure massage
