Osteoarthritis hip outcome

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis hip outcome


Avatar m tn Hi, The symptoms of severe pain that you are experiencing may be due osteoarthritis or degenerative disease of the spine. The treatment of osteoarthritis includes exercise, medications and measures to protect the joints. This includes a teamwork of rheumatologist, physical therapist and orthopedic surgeon. Please consult an orthopaedic surgeon and rheumatologist for treatment and continue the physiotherapy at the same time for the relief of the symptoms. Hope this helps you.
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.
Avatar m tn I was just about your age. I was 27 when I was diagnosed with the osteoarthritis in my hip joint and needed it then, HOWEVER, back in '74 the implants were brand new and made for elderly - over 80 years old only - as they wouldn't have lasted more than approx 5 to 10 years on me. So they had me put it off and I did for over 7 years, until I was 35, and that RUINED my back because of the way I had to walk and use a cane and limped.
405614 tn?1329147714 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. The MRI arthrogram also shows diffuse articular thinning.
233501 tn?1226478134 Hip Resurfacing Surgery by Dr. Vijay C Bose I underwent Hip Resurfacing surgery with Dr. Vijay C. Bose on September 10, 2007. I am extremely satisfied with the results of my surgery and have returned to an active lifestyle with no residual pain or discomfort whatsoever. Following is a brief history of my condition and how I came to require the services of Dr. Bose and his dedicated team.
Avatar n tn Sorry this has been so long, I really forgot about this site. Hmm, Grinding noise. I had that for years before surgery. You should know by now, only the xray will tell. My surgery was because of an old ACL injury that caused arthritis. It hurt but not to the point I had to take pain pills unless I was doing something like a long ride. Then only Advil. One of the biggest problems was having "loose bodies" floating around getting in the way.
Avatar n tn I can barely move from the pain--stabbing pain in both feet, pain in most joints (though my knees are ok) in my legs, and now, severe pain in my left hip. It eventually goes away as long as I keep moving. I don't smoke or anything like that. I've mentioned this to my GP and she just says this can be typical for my age. But I work with people my age and they don't look like 85 year olds when they first start moving. In fact, my 85 year old mother in law looks less stiff when she gets up.
Avatar n tn I have over the last few years had severe groin and hip pain, am female early forties. Initially this was put down to osteoarthritis but the pain and weakness is out of all proportion to the level of damage. One interesting finding in various tests was a severe vitamin d deficicency. A typical symptom of this is difficulty crouching, which I have too. Make sure you get that checked. Re the tingling it may also be worth getting your b vitamin levels checked too.
Avatar f tn But my right leg is a little bit shorter than the left leg, and the muscles in my right thigh are smaller and somewhat atrophied compared to the muscles in m left leg. My x-rays show some early osteoarthritis in my right hip, and my right hip is pretty deformed and flattened out on top. I struggle to remain active. I too enjoy working out - weight lifting, hiking, cycling, etc - but it can be pretty difficult to do on some days.
Avatar f tn I have SEVERE DDD and osteoarthritis, 2 hip implants and getting ready for my 3rd replacement hip implant. My Osteoarthritis began when I was in my teens. I had my FIRST hip implant when I was 35 years old (I needed it when I was diagnosed BUT the implants weren't maed for a young person and wouldn't have lasted very long, so I had to put it off until I was 35 years old). I have Facet Arthritis and have had the RFA (Radio Frequency Ablation).
Avatar f tn I was adopted when I was 6 months old in January, 1947. My diagnosis of Osteoarthritis in my left Hip happened when I was 28 years old and by the extent of the damage my Doctors estimated that I'd probably had the arthritis since I was at LEAST 15 years old.
216281 tn?1189759426 As it is the most common site of problems. My hip causes the most significant problems though as I can not bear weight when it is flaring. But anyway. He said "we're gonna give you a shot into the joint." I asked him if it hurt, as I have never received a injection of this nature, and he said, "It won't hurt me." He said that I had osteoarthritis and when I questioned him about this being the cause of the dibilitating fatigue, he said, he didn't think it was.
1673736 tn?1304184412 Hello Everyone, I am 46 y/o f, and have degenrative osteoarthritis in my lower back and hips. I have had hip and back pain for years. A few years ago I had xrays on my hips and was told that I had arthritis in them. I recently had a bad fall last November and that was when I was told that I had arthritis in my low back. I must have triggered something in my lower back because, since then I have had the worst back pain ever.
5692606 tn?1372495303 Narrowing of the disc space. A recent previous hip x-ray reported 'both hips show mild degenerative changes'. A few years later I was diagnosed with Sciatica also. What I'd like to know is what the x-ray results mean (in lay terms please!) and why the wordage makes it sound like I have a 'mild' everything whilst the pain levels I suffer would not concur. I can barely walk 20 - 25 yards without having to sit - before I fall.
Avatar m tn Hello Hep Researcher- Question, is it safe for me to take Celebrex for moderate to severe osteoarthritis? History- 2/2 biopsy a few years ago, completed 72 weeks of tx, 3 month undectable, now 4 months post tx. I've read the warning indications for celebrex and liver disease (active liver disease) is mentioned as being a possible problematic contradiction in combo W/celebrex.
10175413 tn?1427173851 The reason for this post is I want to know how many post treaters have had to see a Rheumatologist, over bone pain and now pretty nasty degenerative joint disease in the pelvic, hip and knee joint areas? Any additional info you want to provide is welcome....
Avatar n tn I am Fatigued, tierd, weak in the legs, lower back pain, hip pain.. I have also been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my lower back as well osteoporosis in my back, scoliosis in my spine, sclorosis in my hip joints, if that is not enough.. I also have shooting pains in my feet, my legs go to sleep(lower half)especially if I cross my legs..Sometimes I cut myself in the leg or foot and not feel it, also I bruise myself in my legs and not know it.
900459 tn?1304996859 ) She immediately got me to go to an Orthopedic specialist and we discovered that I had a VERY advanced case of Osteoarthritis on my left hip. So severe that it needed to be replaced soon but because I was so young they had me wait as long as I could stand it. I waited until I was 35 years old. ( They had me on Tylox 6 times a day for a year and Darvocet 100's since I was originally diagnosed so that I would be able to put off the surgery.
1551275 tn?1295372703 I also have lymphedema, nerve damage, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Its been over a year from THR but I still have pain on my hip on and off, is that normal considering all the trauma to that area and all my other health issues? My hip was cemented; but I ended up with that leg a quarter of an inch shorter. My doctor saw me and took X rays on the 6 month after surgery and stated that I was healing well. I havent gone back since due to not having health insurance.
739070 tn?1338607002 Finally saw ortho re L hip pain one year ago and he was the 1st to order PT. Hip pain thought to be due to weakness and altered gait according to PT. I am currently seeing the same PT for increased L leg weakness (needed to physically lift leg to get in car). We discussed the hip pain and weakness issues.
358486 tn?1294779988 I have misformed hip joints which has led to early osteoarthritis and tendonosis of the iliopsoas mucles. I would check out the psoas muscle as a cause because this is an under diagnosed cause of SI dysfunction. I am trying to find treatment to the pain myself but so far pain killers is my only relief. The pain is getting worse each week and I no one seems to know anything about the SI area. I am very active in my treatment and I will find the answer that I need so I will keep you posted.
Avatar f tn My Lower back is doing GREAT, however, I have SEVERE DDD {Degenerative Disc Disease throughout my ENTIRE back. I have Osteoarthritis in EVERY joint in my body, I've had 3 LEFT Hip Implants - YES I said LEFT HIP IMPLANTS, beginning 30 years ago and the LAST one was 5 months ago. I JUST finished getting 2 more MRI's one for the middle of my back and the other my neck. I've got a total of 5 bulging discs and they range from moderate to EXTREME.
215385 tn?1201806501 It seems to be happening more and more, whenever I stand from sitting or when I sit down again. It doesn't hurt although my hip joints have hurt on and off since all this started.... it just makes a loud noise. I know it's probably nothing to do with what has been happening and it's probably unrelated but just I would see if anyone knew what might be causing it. I normally swim everyday but since all this has happened I haven't been able to...could this may be have something to do with it.
Avatar f tn Could this be osteoarthritis? Or Ra? I have been taking anti-inflammatories and I seem to respond well. In other words it takes away any pain. I am planning on seeing a rheumatologist soon. Please advise! Thank you!
Avatar n tn Hi was just reading about your back and I have the same trouble , am full of osteoarthritis and just had a thr a month ago but while my hip is fine it's my back that's the problem, walking ,doing dishes , getting out of bed in the mornings etc and my lower back gets to a point were my legs won't work and I stiffen up completely , the doctors just keep upping my morphine but am going to a chronic pain clinic next week so I hope they will look into it more .
Avatar n tn the pain i had came from bone on bone which the doctor said i had osteoarthritis which came from my cartilage being destroyed. my wrist was so painful that it hurt to lift a full cup of coffee, i was waking in the middle of the night from pain. I would suggest asking your doctor that you would like a MRI with contrast (dye). that should clearly tell your doctor or the radiologist if you have any soft tissue damage to your hand.
931217 tn?1283484935 [86-89] Hip dysplasia is estimated to lead to clinically significant arthritis is fewer than 5% of affected dogs, but there are many factors involved including breed, weight, and the degree of anatomic abnormality of the hip joint, which makes predicting the outcome for any individual difficult.[89] The incidence of hip dysplasia is most strongly associated with breed and family history.[86,90,91]. Some studies have identified neutering as increasing the risk of hip dysplasia.[86,92].
176803 tn?1198543198 I am not willing to risk a bad outcome by having a fusion. I'd rather use the medication to control the pain I have now because I know it works for now. I am only 52. Just having the experience of the laminectomy and how it stopped me in my tracks and changed my life was enough for me to say NO to anymore surgery. I felt my lifestyle was taken away from me. I ave cried more over the last 4 months than I have in the last 20 years! So now I just play the cards I have been dealt.
Avatar n tn Another reason I am dreading surgery is I had spine fusion at S1-L5 level in 1986 and even though the surgery was successful, I contracted (osteomyelitis) a staph infection in the bone (starting at the bone graph site in my right upper hip that migrated down through the hip joint and into my femur). I was deathly ill and in severe pain. I had a Hickman catheter in my chest for 1 year so I could administer I.V.
Avatar n tn My back pain was secondary to writhing hip pain that seemed to originate in my sacrum, spread rapidly into my hips and then into my right leg. Clinical findings were diminished or absent ankle reflexes and positive Lessegue's sign which persist to this day.
