I had a hip replacement May 12. A week later I went to stand up and something snapped and the pain was intense. I couldn't put weight on the leg or move leg. Ended up back in the hospital, no dislocation. Two different Orthopedic Surgeons have had completely different opinions. One says stay off of it for 4 weeks and for any walking to tip toe with only a walker. The other one said with the current xray compared to the post op xray the stem has shifted in the femur. Maybe looking at a hip revision. Advised me to stay off of it for a few more weeks and then another xray. Any suggestions?
