Have you seen anything like this Crazy Hip of mine
I’m 56 yrs old and I had my left hip replaced 6 weeks ago. A few days after surgery I noticed a light red 6” circle on my upper buttock/hip area. My surgery was an anterior approach. Within the following week the circle was becoming elongated and going down the back of my upper thigh. When I was able to remove my bandage there was a 2” spot across my incision. It was darker than the rest of the incision and felt hard. Overall incision looked pretty good. Things have worsened almost daily. I’ve finished a round of baclofen and then clindimyacin and was given a rocephin shot last Thursday. Blood work doesn’t really show signs of infection but it is sore, achy and has really made the muscles in my thigh hurt.. I have been having signs of infection like sweating and feeling awful but can’t say I’ve had a fever. I’m not one to sit around. I’m usually up managing our family cafe 13 hours a day. This is keeping me down. Once I’m up for an hour or more I do start experiencing quite a bit of pain. Dr wants me to wait 2 more weeks and then run blood tests again. Has anyone ever seen anything like this. I must say I’m getting a little worried now and not sure waiting 2 more weeks is a good idea. Photos are in order from beginning until now.
