Instability after hip replacement

Posted by naturebuff @naturebuff, Dec 12, 2019

After total hip replacement, feels like bone wobbles in socket when climb stairs. I must hold onto a railing to create stability. Gait is fine and can stand on one foot for 60 seconds. Issue occurs when all weight is placed on the one hip when climbing stairs. Any input would be appreciated.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Joint Replacements group.

Hello @naturebuff, welcome to Connect. I'd like to invite @babarker, @owieann, @popolopo, @binblessed, and @mamie to share their experience with hip replacement, some of the complications they had and whether or not they experienced periods of instability after their surgeries.

@naturebuff, If you don't mind sharing, how long ago was your replacement? Are you still in the rehab phase or are you quite a ways out from your surgery already?

Hello, and welcome to Mayo Connect. We are a community of people and caregivers living with a wide variety of conditions and diseases who try to help one another along the way. We are not medical professionals, so we don't give medical advice. As a "veteran" of 5 hip replacement and revision surgeries, I would be willing to try to answer some of your questions, but need a little information to be helpful.
I see your one word post, and wonder if you are experiencing the instability @naturebuff reported two years ago?
If so, can you tell us a little about your hip, when you had surgery, and what it feels like?
