I am new to this forum. I am having weird sensations in the hip, months after the hardware revision. The hip feels very unstable, as if it is going to slide away from me. It feels like the hip is about to dislocate at any moment, giving me a feeling of impending doom. It feels like there are ball bearings in the hip, or the sensation of when you walk on sheer ice and can't get traction. I have had 4 different X-rays since the revision, which all show the hardware to be intact and in place, yet I have this feeling intermittently and when I have it, I feel like I better not do anything. I have not heard of anyone else having this sensation and I would like to know if I am the only one who has felt this way. History: My original R hip replacement (THA) was 1/1/2005. I had many good years with the hip, but it dislocated 7/4/2017. Then had a second dislocation 12/13/18. My surgeon recommended hardware revision. On 2/15/19 I had a R hip hardware revision, with the installation of a Freedom Constrained Liner and a new ceramic ball. My surgeon said there had been minimal wear on the cup but the joint capsule had been torn at some point which probably was related to the second dislocation. He said, "We fixed you up." My recovery progressed nicely afterward, and I had my second post-op visit on 4/3/19. Exam and X-rays were normal, and I was told I did not need to be on hip precautions except that I could not place my R leg in 3 planes at once, that is, do not bring your R leg to the L side of the body. At that time I was walking 2 miles without assistance (no cane). On 6/25/19 I had the first sensation of my leg wanting to slide away. This subsided by the following day, and for the next couple weeks I walked OK, but with a cane. On 7/7/19 I again had the sensation. My surgeon had retired, so I had to get a referral to another ortho clinic. On 7/22/19 I had the ortho appointment. X-rays, exam, and labs were all OK. The new provider, however, told me 1) Healing from a hip hardware revision takes a year; 2) Your anxiety makes it worse; 3) Need to follow hip precautions for the rest of your life. I still have no explanation for the sensation. I am currently using a cane much of the time, although I can walk a bit inside the house without it. I am perplexed because I was doing so well, and then I wasn't. I would like to know if anyone else has had similar sensations.
