Good evening. I know what it’s like to have atrophy muscles. I have in thigh and buttock atrophy. This was due to deformed hip that was not letting muscles be used correctly. I had hip replacement and it took a little over a year to get off the cane. Muscles were weak and there’s been pain because I was a almost 2 inches short so dr gave me back almost all my length. So muscles have been stretched. The muscles are stronger but was a long recovery. I also got nerve pain. The femoral cutaneous nerve was either damaged or injured because I did have to have a total hip revision 3 weeks after first hip replacement due to dislocation. I think it was because my hip muscles were weak and didn’t hold new hip in place. After revision I had to be non weight bearing and no hip flexión past 80 degrees for 6 weeks. Was a very hard and depressing time for me. It’s been a little over 3 years now. Still have nerve pain tho. But am walking with no assistance and go to gym 3/4 x a week. If it wasn’t for the nerve pain I’d be ok. I’m on gabapentin and have a spinal stimulator I planted for past year and a half now. I wish you all the best.
