Has anyone had sharp thigh pain after hip replacement

@lbosrig Just noticed your post about hip pain after replacement. I had both hips replaced, and my first side was a breeze. After the initial pain from surgery faded I could dance for joy as pain free. A year later I had the right side done expecting the same outcome. Unfortunately I was in for a depressing time of continual pain after surgery. At 6 months the pain seemed worse than pre surgery. I got no place with the surgeon in MI so, to make a long story short, 30 months after surgery I saw an orthopedic surgeon at Mayo who gave me an injection. It helped for 4 months so I made another appointment with her which was delayed two months due to COVID. When I saw her in July, she had made arrangements for me to have a guided injection done by a pain doctor. Five months after and I am still pain free. I am hoping that some way the pain will not find it's way back to me. It sounds like it may be to soon for you to get worried about it. Try to think positive! I am an example of worrying getting me nowhere, and I did find someone who listened to me at Mayo!

Hello! I am just wondering where exactly you were injected? I’ve been in pain for about 3 years. I’ve had 2 hip replacements. I went to an ortho surgeon who injected my bursa and so far so good. I’d had the same injection 2 times prior with no results. Everyone focused on my back and I was set to have a spinal cord stimulator implanted but tried this fella one last time and like I said, so far so good. Fingers crossed we will both remain pain free!!
