Well, it's 5 months post left THR all was going fantastic, now in last 3 weeks SURPRISE... significant hip pain! All symptoms (lifting leg off ground more than few inches, foot slides, problems putting on socks) point to hip tendonitis - ileopsoas tendon. Surgeon had X-ray done, blood work... no problems, no infection. He suspects tendonitis, suggests cortisone shot if it doesn't go away. What troubles me is I had no change in activity... in fact, really only been doing every day stuff + light walking. Perhaps, too much sitting was in the back of my mind. I had no problems up to this pain coming on, although I still have numbness/burning sensation left of incision, attributed to pretty common dermal nerve injury. My REAL problem is, I have right THR scheduled next month! I'm super apprehensive to go ahead with this if my left hip tendonitis isn't healed!! I had cortisine shots for years for both deteriorated hips joints and certainly don't want to go back to that for chronic tendonitis. Appreciate any feedback!
