Mar 6, 2017 · End of stem pain after total hip replacement in Joint Replacements

Yes. I’ll keep you posted as well. I meant to also say we travelled to Mayo, Rochester MN in Dec. 2010 , stayed for 3 1/2 weeks for testing and surgery with Dr. Eric Dozois. My husband had gastrointestinal surgery. Colon removed. The most excellent testing, care and outcome at Mayo!!

Amber. Let me know how things go at Mayo in MN. I am in western NC and I am considering going to Mayo in MN in a few months. I had R & L total HR in Sept & Oct. Right hip good, but Left has major issues with lifting leg to walk stairs, get in car, etc. My Ortho surgeon in Asheville is of no help. Good luck to you!

Jan 6, 2017 · THR, Anterior Approach - 3 week mark in Joint Replacements

Re: POSSIBLE HIP JOINT INFECTION
Had second (left) total hip replacement anterior surgery 10/24/16. Currently at 11 week mark. Unfortunately, I continue to have more joint pain now than I had pre-surgery.
Ortho doctor is suspicious of a deep joint infection (there is no sign of infection from outside, as all healed nicely and no swelling). I have had two blood tests for sedimentation rate and protein. Both were elevated, which is an indication of infection. Next was a visit with musculoskeletal radiologist for hip joint aspiration of joint fluids. I am awaiting results.

Question : Has anyone experienced this ?

Yes. Pain level has greatly improved at Week 5, post surgery TRHR. Feeling much better and mobility almost normal. Walked 2.68 miles at one time yesterday. I continue with recumbent bike and floor exercises.
I will have THR on Left hip surgery next Monday.

Thank you. I just don’t know what to expect and I’m beginning to get concerned that I’m having surgery on the left hip too soon, although it is also bone-on bone. I guess I need to see how week 4 recovery goes. Also, I’m not the most patient person either ….

I have seen my Ortho surgeon at 2 weeks, and yes, I am in PT 1x per week. I continue to do the exercises my PT has given me, as well as treadmill and recumbent bike.
