Olá de Portugal! I have been a member for some time but this is my first post. Firstly, I had a total hip replacement, left anterior non-cemented following a fall breaking my femur at the neck (Garden 4). After 6 weeks non weight bearing and 18 physio sessions I was back to normal. After several years of a dodgy knee and a twist and fall in October, an MRI in December revealed patellafemoral subluxation, chondromalacia and muscle atrophy in the left knee. Doing physio ttherapy I progressed to hip flexor exercises and I experienced severe pain in my left thigh from just above my knee to the hip externally. I saw an Orthopedic specialist last Friday and he said my hip was causing all the problems. My hip has never bothered me! He took an x-ray and said to take it to the surgeon who did my hip replacement (whom he knows). He prescribed Tramadol 37.5/Paracetamol 325 twice daily for pain. I have edema in left thigh. My last hip x-ray and exam was February 2016. What does the x-ray show? My appointment is not for another two weeks. I am in great discomfort and cannot put any pressure on my left leg, hence I cannot walk! Any comments welcomed and thank you in advance.
