Avatar m tn ) I'm sorry that you will be facing a hip replacement. I'm currently recuperating from my 3rd hip replacement. Don't let that frighten you at all because the FIRST one lasted almost 30 years and after it I did EVERYTHING thing that I did before the implant. I wore 4" heels, I danced, I hiked, I ran, I played soft ball with my little kids and the BEST thing of all was that ALL of the pain was GONE!!!! I was just about your age.
Avatar m tn At age 58 in August of 2011 I had my right hip replaced as a result of Osteoarthritis. Then after 2 weeks developed severe pain again that was not relieved by anything. I was made to wait for 5 months before Insurance Companies would allow any further surgery. Then in January 2012 my second surgery to my right hip was done. This seemed to be better for a while. Now in January 2013 at the one year mark I have developed severe pains to my right hip area that travels all the way around my leg.
Avatar f tn Can you have osteoarthritis pain recur AFTER a hip replacement? I have had both hips replaced (THR); the first 16 years ago and the second 7 years ago. The first hip is still doing fine -- hardly know it ever happened. However during the past year the second hip has become quite painful: pain felt in the groin (as hip pain often is) with bending & rotating the hip joint, much like before surgery.
Avatar f tn Happy Friday! I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my left hip. A hip replacement is inevitable, but I hope to manage the pain (which has been getting worse this year) for a while, before facing surgery. I got my first infection on October 1 (16 days ago), hoping for some relief for my daughter's wedding that was on October 10. I regret to say that, so far, I am not feeling much relief at all.
Avatar m tn What they wouldn't tell me is after having this operation, how much time will this operation buy me before need ing a Hip resurface or a total hip replacement? I have search everywhere online but cannot find any stories of people saying how they benefitted from having this surgery and how long it lasted...? Thanks all.
Avatar m tn This lead to inventions of techniques and now there is huge development in methods of hip replacement surgery. Hip replacement surgery is the use of metal, ceramic or plastic parts to replace the ball at upper end of femur(thigh bone) and reemerge the hip socket in the pelvic bone. This ball-socket joint is one of the largest and most important joint of the body. The causes of chronic hip pain is arthritis.
Avatar m tn Hello, I am 46 yrs old, male, ex-athlete (competitive level basketball) and live in London, England. A year ago I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis on my left hip during an arthroscopy and most of the joint cartilage is worn out. Take glucosamine tablets regularly. Even though my condition is not so advanced to take painkillers etc, I cannot do any sport, which is important to me (even at a light, amateur level) and walking start bothering me after a few hundered meters.
Avatar n tn recently i went to a hip specialist with hip pain and he said i have a hole in my hip bone which is caused by a cyst and wants to do a hip replacement. he said if i don't have it i will be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life cuz the hole will just keep growing..
1131208 tn?1260211546 I have been told by the orthopedic surgeon that cortisone shots are a waste of my time as they only work for a short while and they injure the surrounding tissues as well. His opinion is that a full hip replacement surgery is my only realistic option. I have done my research, my homework, and have read that the same is true for AVN...sounds like we are in the same boat.
Avatar n tn It was suggested I just leave it until it wreaks my otherwise healthy hip and have a hip replacement. I am very active and healthy so this was not an option. I have contacted a hospital in New York City and am going for a consultation and diagnosis in 3 weeks. If in fact it is a labral tear the cost of the surgeon and hospital are very high.
Avatar f tn I had this happen to me and it was caused from Osteoarthritis in my hip. It would cause the pain to radiate down my leg all the way to my toes as you are experiencing. I had to have a THR (Total Hip Replacement) done when I was 35 years old to get the pain taken care of. I've had 2 others since then, over a 30 year period of time. (the first one lasted for 26 years.) But it's my understanding that SI Joint disease can also do this. That's why you need to get it narrowed down.
991524 tn?1249345393 The tear is not healing itself, and I've been told that osteoarthritis and hip replacement will be accelerated if I choose not to get a repair. So, I'm having the surgery next week. I consulted 2 orthopedists in NYC--Dr Michael Kang and Dr Brian Kelly--and they both told me similar things--I would be on crutches for a few weeks post-op, would start PT right away, and hopefully be back to full sport within 4-6 months of PT. I'll keep you posted on my progress....
Avatar m tn I am curious, when you say 'hip implant', do you mean a hip replacement? You said that you have had 3 hip implants? Can you tell us since when, and why so many have had to be replaced? Thank you.
Avatar m tn I have been told that at my age the plan should be to manage the pain as best as I can until it becomes necessary to have a total hip replacement and because of my age I am not a candidate for hip preservation surgery, i.e. arthroscopic remodeling of the femoral head, labrum repair or debridement, etc. I have also been told that cycling is OK as tolerated because it is a closed cycle activity. I also XC ski in the winter. I have recently had xrays and an MRI.
Avatar f tn MRI results show that my hip joint is degenerating (early onset of osteoarthritis), I have tendonosis of my iliopsoas muscles, and grade 1 strains of my adductors and quadratus femorus. The pain is spreading from my buttock to my knee and midway up my back. I have tingling in my shins as well. There are days that I can not walk properly. I recently have had an injection in my SI joint, it did not help.
Avatar f tn I have had bilateral hip replacements, knee replacement, shoulder replacement and stenosis for which I have had back surgery for L4-5, S1, laminectomy and spinal fusion. The stenosis is back in my spine. I have been taken off anything with acetaminophen b/c of the kidney damage. I am in terrible pain and need something that I can take that will not cause more kidney damage.
1378884 tn?1315509445 When I had my first hip replacement, it made my leg a good 1-1/2 inches longer than the other one. Over the three years before I had the other hip replaced, I developed problems in my left foot, opposite knee, and lower back. Having said that, RA can have many different triggers. A common infection can trigger the immune system to start attacking the body - no one knows why.
233501 tn?1226478134 The life of conventional Total Hip Replacement is about 10 to fifteen years. A superior alternative to this is the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing. The first procedure in India was performed at Apollo Speciality Hospital Chennai. In this procedure only the diseased part of the head of femur is removed and a metal cap made of cobalt and chromium is fitted on it. The acetabular side is also fitted with a metal cup. Due to the metal on metal interface the joint does not wear out easily.
3134561 tn?1342629375 For an effective hip pain management, one should know the symptoms and causes of hip problems. Hip replacement surgery is one of the most prescribed treatments for hip problems. The Stryker hip replacement recall broadens definition of metal-on-metal hip. There are several people all over the world who are dealing with hip pain problems on a daily basis.
405614 tn?1329147714 I also posted this in the Orthopedic community. I would appreciate any input. I discovered that I have a hip labral tear in my right hip, and went to see a surgeon about having it repaired arthroscopically. I was told that my hip arthritis was to advanced to have a good outcome and I would be needing a hip replacement, and should wait until then. Her chart notes said that I have " hip symptoms consistent with femoral acetabular impingement and arthritis.
Avatar n tn After having a surgery to fix on particular problem that left me with a whole different problem I went to three other osteo docs. They all advised me to have hip replacement due to osteoarthritis, but I didn't want to do that without trying every other avenue. I recently had a 'live blood analysis' and discovered a tiny organism called 'mycoplasma arthritides' was responsible for my problem. I was told that a trauma like my surgery couild have triggered the organism.
1459410 tn?1285698605 They did TMJ surgery to strengthen it and scrape part of the arthritis off (that never did make sense to me) and said that I also would be on a soft food diet, but 20 years later, the surgery is still a success in my book. I did find relief (pre surgery) not from the prescription meds, but from an old remedy my dad use to use for his bad knees. It is quinine. I'm not a doctor, and am not advising anyone to take quinine, but for me, it helped.
Avatar m tn Oh, I forgot to add that a revision hip surgery to "install replacement parts" isn't nearly as bad as the initial surgery, at least as long as the femur implant and the socket implant are intact. I had my left one redone and all that needed replaced was the socket liner, and the ball head of the thigh implant. Actually the ball looked fine but the surgeon decided two new parts were better than having one old part in contact with the new part.
Avatar f tn The pain may come and go depending on her activity level. My thinking is that the surgery in the left hip made subtle changes in the way she walks, which in time led to damage in the other hip. This is not at all uncommon. When I had my left hip replaced, it was three years before the right one, and in that time my right foot went bad because of the changes in my gait. The hip bears all the weight of the torso above it, so it won't be the same pain as in her shoulder.
Avatar f tn and How long do I have to wait between the Supartz shots before I can get the Synvisc-One? Any other options besides surgery? It has been recommended to have Arthroscopic surgery or total knee replacement by my doctor but I am only 56 and they don't really want to do it unless absolute necessary. They want me to wait as long as possible! They aren't having the pain that I am having or seem to understand how this has effected my daily life. Anyone have any suggestions?
Avatar m tn Yes, 21 is very young to be getting a hip implant, however, I wasn't much older, 28, when I was told in 1974 that I needed a hip implant because of Osteoarthritis. At that time the hip implants were quite knew and my Doctor had me put it off until I couldn't stand the pain anymore because in 1974 the implants were only good for about 5 to 10 years in someone as young and active as I was. I managed to go until I couldn't stand the pain anymore which was another 7 years when I was 35 yrs old.
Avatar n tn osteoarthritis was noted in one of them and it has been suggested that I get a hip replacement. I do not feel that what I have been shown on the xrays and the minor sensation I feel of bone on bone pain is what is causing all of this other pain. I am still searching for the answer. The latest...they have done multiple vaginal ultrasounds and an MRI on my lower back.
Avatar f tn I have been taking Meloxicam and painkillers. Today I have been to see a specialist with the view to having knee replacement surgery. After looking at my recent x rays he has informed me that I have Avascular Necrosis in both knees. My left knee joint has collapsed and the right one is heading for collapse. Can you tell me if Avascular Necrosis is a form of Arthritis? If so what do you get first Osteoarthritis or Avascular Necrosis?I am 55 years old.
Avatar m tn It's official, will be undergoing bilateral hip resurfacing surgery in late July. Doc is going to install the Cormet implants in both hips, surgery will take around 3 hrs. I chose resurfacing as opposed to total implant due to my stats, mainly my young age---in osteoarthritis years (g)..I'm 51 (male, solid bones, no metal allergies, etc).
