My husband had hip revision surgery last March.

My husband had hip revision surgery last March. He was left mostly paralyzed in that leg. It’s been 10 months of pt and he has improved and walks with a walker. He had severe bone loss so there was doubt that it was going to hold. Last X-ray sept 2014 dr said walker or cane see u in March. Well nov pt evaluation the realist said something not right. He twisted leg and my husband felt something pop. Wa down for days because of pain. He thought it was just the usual pain from surgery only worse because of the pt twisting and evaluating. Hence just got in to see dr only to discover cup has moved and turned, and 1 of the screws is broken sticking sideways. Dr says 2 months to order new custom made part. Well it’s 9 weeks before surgery only to find out its 3 weeks to make it. It all comes down to he only does 1 of these 1 a week. Get inline. Has anyone had this new plate and cup put in at mayo. I have called to get opinion from dr he saw there before the surgery to see what his opinion is. The dr is the best in this area but waiting over 2 months in pain seems unfair . What are the results of this surgery please? Thanks

Why did he need revision surgery? I broke my hip august 2016 and still on walker. My dr. Mentioned hav>ng to take out rod and pens and redo it. Was this his problem?

I am 62 and I had both hips replaced total anterior hip replacements, one in July the other in Sept of 2018, well the right hip first one went well and so did left hip the 2nd one, until 3 months later I started to have these very painful muscles spasm in my left calf. My surguron think it could be poor blood circulation so they want an ultrasound to rule out poor circulation. I'm trying my PT exercises at home and drinking more water, eating bananas to see if its a mineral deficiency in my body. I want to try to relax these muscles first before spending money on a maybe needless ultrasound which means a new doctor a Vascular doctor comes in the picture. I'm so doctored out after walking in pain for two years from h[p pain, but now that I have both hips replaced and just dealing with muscles spasms I think I'll do what I can for at least 3 weeks and if not improved by then I will see a Vascular doctor. I hope this helped. I'm very pleased with my hips this pain is nothing compared to the pain I had before surgery and for that I feel blessed.
