Has anyone had sharp thigh pain after hip replacement

@carolg

@eleanor1. Hi Eleanor, hope that's your name. I am so sorry for what you are going through. It's been 3 years for me. I have been diagnosed with neuropathy, for which Lyrica has been a big help. I have also been told that my CT scan is normal. However, I know my body and I feel like I'm being impaled going up and down stairs. I had the injections last week and in return my blood pressure and blood sugar increased. I wish you well. I was told that the pain I had in my non surgical leg was because I was protecting the hip replacement side and putting more stress on the other side. Hope that makes sense. I found that the pain clinic people just want to inject me…I can't get the answers I need toes in my . People around me are getting a little tired of hearing me whine about the pain in my hip. I hope your surgery goes very well and you get relief.

TY for responding to my post. My surgery was 6 years ago, and did the same thing you are doing now – I was protecting the right leg (which was painful) and putting stress on the left leg to the point that I now have a compressed disc (pinched nerve on the left side in my spine at the L5) which is why the spinal specialist said he can only correct the left side and the surgery will do nothing for the right leg. My Doctor put me on Cymbalta, and It made me so sick – i refused to take it – and since I can't take NSAID's I don't take anything at all for the pain. Don't stop complaining someone will listen hopefully sooner than later – I didn't stop and if I survive this surgery I will be back at the hospital bothering the Ortho Doctor again until he fixes this right leg…. Don't give up….

I so appreciate everyone's encouraging imput, have done much research on physicians and the implant material, as suggested by all, and Frister, thanks for that mention of you being the #11 on the surgery schedule!! That was an eye opening for me to mention to the surgeon, as through this "decision making process", I have become bolder in conversations with physicians, I now feel more courage, thanks to everyone, and more knowledgeable, reading these comments everyday. God Bless us all in these unsettling conditions. Martha

I refused to take it too because of the long term side effects that NEVER go away! My gastroenterologist then recommended Iberogast. I just found out my son who is 51 has this disease too. Does anyone know if it is hereditary?

I have to tell you. My daughter-in-law has had severe back pain. She has 2 bulging disks and a torn ligament. Waiting for an appointment for injections was painful and Tylenol and Tylenol 3 wasn't helping when she's trying to be a mom. She tired CBD Oil. Swears by it. She originally bought it in a cream and is off the Tylenol. Still going to have to have those injections and possible surgery but the pain is gone as long as she uses it. Anyone else tried it?

I have alot of Gastro problems, including a strangulated colon,and one of them is also having the vagus nerve effected as well,, I have passed out when trying to have a bowel movement.. I had it under control ( for the most part) before my hip surgery,, I was using a "squatty Potty" but cant use it with the pain I have in my thigh and hip,, I dont know if that will help you and or your son,, but give it a try.. Bed bath and beyond,, with coupon,, end up with good price..

@hammerhead –be careful when you say it cant get any worse,, I stopped saying that years ago.. because I found out how much worse it can get,, when the dr said NEW man,,, he forgot to tell you that that "new" man has lots of pain,, good luck to you

This is so very true, frister. I wish I never had it done. I hate living with excruciating pain and limitations. My surgeon says this is common and will go away a year after surgery. I should have placed a bet with him. It's getting worse. My pain now is worse than before my surgery. I've now been diagnosed with severe osteoporosis so I sure as heck don't want to trip and fall. Yes, it can get worse.

So sorry to read of your misery!! What is worse, the physicians who REALLY encourage the surgery, want nothing to do with one after the failure. There must be a solution to this occurrence, time and time again, martha

Hello @nessa, you may notice that I moved your discussion and combined it with another discussion titled, "Has anyone had sharp thigh pain after hip replacement?" I did this so you could read through some of the previous posts and so that you would be introduced to the many members already discussion post-hip replacement pain.

@nessa, I don't have experience with hip replacement surgery but I did have my right knee done when I was young (19). I had a real tough time with scar tissue so I had pain for a long time after my initial surgery. If you are comfortable sharing with the group, how intense is the pain? Is it movement based?

HELP!!!!
I had a total right hip replacement 4 years ago 2014.
Lately, I’ve experienced sharp stabbing pain in the hip area and travels down my right leg. I’ve had X-rays and MRI’s, all to no avail. It also feels like fluids are draining inside of my hip. The pain is so severe, it keeps me awake at night.
Currently, I’m taking Oxycodone, Lyrica, Baclofen, Ropinirole for pain and Seroquel to help me sleep.
Any advice?

@donaldc, you mentioned you have had x-rays and MRIs with not answers. Has your provider or surgeon offered any thoughts on what the pain and sensations might be coming from?
