Three years ago I had a hip replacement done for an aging joint. Things seemed fine for a couple of weeks, then pain started. I met with the surgeon five times over a 2 month period. He assured me that the pain would go away. Now three years later I am still having pain and it is getting worse. I can only walk short distances before stopping to wait for the pain to dissipate.
I recently visited with the surgeon again – had both an xray and a MRI. Doctor says everything is fine. I am supposed to ignore the pain. Meanwhile I have been looking at wheelchairs and getting the house remodeled for ramps. Surgeon no help, no interest.
