Mon, Apr 30 10:32am · End of stem pain after total hip replacement in Joint Replacements

Please keep us updated if you find anything. I have had every scan and every x-ray available, they still don't know what's causing the thigh pain. I have posted above so you can read all about my plight. I cannot take pain meds because they make me sick. I stay on a walker when I'm at home by
myself and a cane when I go out with my husband. I even had the revision surgery because the doctor told me that would cure my thigh pain. It did not help at all and I think it even made it worse. All the best, keep us posted

Just wanted you to know to that I do not take any opioids at all either, they make me sick. The only thing I do take is Tylenol and Celebrex. I tried the gabapentin it did not help at all. i had the bone scan and every x-ray scan test imaginable and I still do not know what is causing the pain. We live in Tennessee so there is no chance of us getting the oul you referred to. Did that help you at all? I'm going to the doctor in two weeks and maybe he will refer me to a pain clinic and we'll see what they say. Keep us all posted on how your bone scan comes out and if they find anything that's causing your pain.

Are you going to do Forteo again or try Prolia ?

Yes, that is what I was told also. I have been off several years so therefore the dr. said I could now do Prolia, but not Forteo again.

I went to the physical therapist Tuesday. It was an exciting experience. The thigh bones around the stem of the hip replacement is so thin thus causing so much pain when I try to walk, therefore, I stay on a cane and a walker. The therapist will start with baby steps to strengthen that muscle and hopefully the bones But because of the overstretched muscles and tendons, the surgeon stretched my leg. The therapist tried this new technique called dry needling. It is similar to acupuncture but seemed a lot different as far is going deeper into the Trigger point. She needled the hip area and thigh area I go back next week and will give you a weather report. All I can tell you is that when I walked out the pain had definitely subsided. This lessening of the pain has lasted for two days now. She told me not to expect a miracle but if I get a days relief that is better than nothing and somewhat encouraging. I know this will be a long continuous process, but at least I saw a tad of improvement more than I have seen in the past few years. The dr has also suggested Prolia to help strengthen my bones to help strengthen them to continue to support this prosthesis in the thigh and to continue to support this prosthesis in the thigh. Hope this information helps some.

Thank you so very much for the Prolia information. My doctor told me yesterday that he wanted to start me on this. Several years ago I took the Fotteo for two years, but since my bones are still so thin, he wants to try me on Prolia. Thank you to everyone who has information on this drug, it will definitely make all of our decision so much easier.
