He did an X-ray and said nothing seemed loose or out of the ordinary. All he said was the numbing/tingling/burning may go away but I’m 8 months out and did not have these problems the first few months after surgery. I’m ready to find a new doc and get another opinion unfortunately.

Hi camper, I agree that you should get a second opinion. There is truth in the fact that it takes a full year for a THR to finally completely heal "settle" for lack of better terms. After my THR posterior, I experienced multiple things that made me think something was wrong during the first 12 months. It turned out the hip replacement was mostly okay but I had given myself a hernia in PT. Only my second opinion surgeon was willing to explore that something else might be wrong. My original surgeon had tunnel vision, "the hip is fine, the hip is fine, the hip is fine", like a robot.
