Muscle spasms 2 years after hip replacement surgery

Posted by @sandigrant, Thu, Nov 8 12:59pm

I have been going to physical therapy to try to strengthen my muscles two years after hip replacement. I get frequent spasms in my thigh and my therapist is stumped. The trigger is stretching the muscles while on the balls o my foot. I do deep breathing to relax the muscle and after a few seconds let’s like it never happened.

Hi. I fractured my hip in 2016 and had a hip replacement. I too get muscle spasms and pain in my thigh after being on my feet too long or walking for too long. My doctor can't explain it either. I am going to physical therapy now and hope it helps.

@sandigrant I know what those spasms are have them in thighs I use my Tens Unit google this it will explain but once I use it my muscles relax The P.T can use it also I think but I have a home unit ,my chiropractor suggested it good luck

I have a Quell unit that’s similar to tens. I’m going to keep with the pt for a while longer.

Tremmors, spasems are one of the many symptoms of Cobalt poisoning. Have your blood tested . If your levels are 0.3 to 1.0 you are probably ok, however if your Cobalt or Chromium level is over 5.0 this could cause real health problems, & more than just tremmors, it can cause : Brain slowing & cognitive problems, fatigue, Thyroid problems, heart problems. Please get your cobalt & chromium level tested. I would recomend doing it at an independent lab or clinic & not at the office of your orthopidic surgen

If you have had any medical implant device in the past 20 years, hips, knees, sholders, that implant is most likely made inpart of one of two toxic metals: Cobalt or chromium. You may not even know it because doctors & The FDA are not requiered to tell you even if that implant has been recalled.
For the love of God, go and get ed blood or urine cobalt cast, do it at your regular doctor not your orthopedic surgeon 0.3- to 1.0 parts per billion is natural – 5 PPB is considered toxic, & strongly suggests having problemd with your implant. If you have 5.0 or higher cobalt levels ask for A Raidiactic sugar contrast PET scan of your brain.
Good news is if you take out the cobalt & replace it with a non toxic implant the cognitive symptoms improve as the cobalt shaveings & cobalt ions process out of your body

@jonpaulcobaltpo good advice I hope everyone that has implant listens to what you have to say.
