I’m sorry to hear about your pain. I also feel down about my failure to recover after a year.Hi. I’m a tear out and have been experiencing quad pain and pain in the bursa. My consultant believes I have bursitis which commonly presents through the quad area. He’s arranging a steroid injection for it which I’m he hopes will sort it. I’m so fed up. I’m only 45 and can hardly walk at all with it at times. It’s a really sharp pain that nearly knocks me off my feet. Also gained weight too since surgery and it’s really getting me down. I’m in the UK.I am having undiagnosed pain one year out from my posterior right hip replacement.
My recent MRI and blood work were fine. I had gotten up to walking a mile and a half and now can barely walk around the block.
I’m on Gabapentin but I don’t think it helps much. I take Tylenol once in a while.
I’ve put on almost twenty pounds since the surgery and can’t exercise to take off the weight. I will cut calories.
My pain is mainly in the quad, with numbness in the outside of the hip.
My surgeon is puzzled and he has decades of experience doing hip replacements. He’s not going to do exploratory surgery.
It so frustrating to not know if I’ll be able to get past this pain.
Today, I had my second dose of Shingrix, so, I get to experience two pains instead of one.
