is ice the way to proceed now, even after all this time? because I am having issues as well and just reached out to doctor for appt and imaging. Past midnight now and cannot sleep for the pain -- and Tylenol not covering it. Am I now just another person who develops or worsens issues in other hips a year out from THR on one side? Tell the truth to me!Oh, no, @SurreyGirl --say it isn't so! Pain in right hip now? When they did x-rays before, did they indicate both hips were a problem or just the left? I know my initial x-rays showed severe osteoarthritis in my right hip and only moderate mostly in my left. But, within 6 months of first hip replacement the left one started kicking up, and reading many forum posts I think this might unfortunately be something that happens to a lot of folks. Do keep an eye on this, and good for you for ceasing all activities, and back to using ice and meds a bit. Let's just hope that @Mojo333 is right, and it's just that your right hip is having to work harder, and not a real problem going forward. Hang in there, and take it easy.
