Hello, I am new to doing anything like this. I am a 36 year old male and last year a had a fall down some stairs at work that I shrugged off for a few weeks. I tried to see my regular doctor but since it happened at work I had to go to someone else, anyway 3 weeks after the fall we find out my femoral head has partially collapsed and that was causing my severe pain with any weight bearing. Fall took place 2/5/18, I had my left THR on 7/5/18. I did therapy for months, I had an injection in my Iliopsoas and that did nothing (severe groin pain, constant throbbing) I was having a lot of thigh pain. My Ortho didn’t know what else to do so he sent me to someone else. March 22nd of 2019 I saw the next surgeon, he looked at my x-ray and in two minutes he saw the problem. The cup that is in my pelvis that hold the ball from the stem was not attached and moving around. July 9th 2019 I had revision surgery. I am about 6 weeks out, the groin pain is worse. The thigh pain throbs on the front of my thigh as well as kind of in the inside too, feel like a deep ache. My left upper button/lower back is in this weird cramped feeling that I can’t get Relief’ from. Physical therapy has not been much help. I also get a really bad pain mid buttock on the left side if I am reaching for anything low, raising the toilet seat, picking something from a low drawer or getting anything from the floor, when I stand back up and I can’t walk for a few seconds becasie the pain is so bad. I can’t stand on that leg, it feels like it’s going to give out, so I always have to lean on things to get dressed. If I hold on to something and stand on operated leg it hurts (deep) and when I take all weight off it hurts deep, almost a sensations like my leg is going to fall off.. I’m just afraid this one is loose too, I forgot to mention I do have AVN, and the revision was screwed into my pelvic area... (also my incision is still open, about one inch) sorry for the rant. I am sure I left something out; but this pain is driving me crazy!
