Avatar m tn Till now i have not heard of this disease than suddenly my friend is diagnosed with this problem. Can anyone tell me what exactly it means.

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.
1378884 tn?1315509445 He found a deposit on the bone near hip as well. MRI tomorrow too. So if my hip feels better, pain goes away in foot then it may be that I have RA and Osteo which is exacerbated by the mechanical injury or visa versa. What do ya think, anyone?
Avatar f tn I have osteoarthritis just about everywhere. 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.
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 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.
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?
991524 tn?1249345393 I saw a Dr in Ortho recently who suggested scoping the hip and stitching up the labrum tear (involves dislocating the hip to do it). My question...does it damage the hip to let this go with no surgery? Do tears mend themselves? Without surgery, will I reaggravate this area whenever I want to hike long distances? I also found out I have had mild hip displasia, and a fast wearing out hip joint and a larger than usual labrum from the displasia that weakened over time...
1958417 tn?1325114532 I recently had an x ray done on my right hip and they think there is a clip left behind from a previous surgery in there. I have been getting the pain for 2 years now and it was only when I sit on the floor for more than 5 min. but now it's getting worse, I get the same pain and stiffness if i sit in a chair for a long period of time and walk and stand for a long time. I dont know what can be done for this and I am not getting any answers from my providers yet.
Avatar m tn I am a 31 year old male that was diagnosed with Hip Osteoarthritis about a year ago after 7/8 years of groin pain! I have just come out of hospital after having a Hip Arthroscopy done to which they removed loose debris and bone spurs as well as drilling holes in the top of the ball section to promote new cartlidge growth. 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?
Avatar m tn For the past few months I have had a sharp pain in my left hip. feels like it is in the joint. But feels muscular. I noticed the pain when sitting down, would lift left leg up to tie my shoe. Pain was mostly on the outside of the hip joint. Never feel pain while walking or biking but have started feeling increased pain while running. One day it feels fine and then another day if aggravated just right, I feel the pain. Probably an 8-10 on the pain scale.
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 m tn I have been suffering from chronic hip pain for about 8 months. I had THR surgery of my right hip on 1-15-08. I seemed to be recovering at a normal pace until December of 2008. I started experiencing pain in the soft tissue of my right hip. I returned to my orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis. Xrays confirmed the hip was good, to be sure a bone scan was ordered, it also showed that everything appeared normal.
Avatar f tn 14 Months ago I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in both knees and Buritis in my hips. It came on suddenly and it is very painful. I have seen 2 specialists and have had 2 lots of steroid injections in both knees and one steroid injection in my right hip. 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.
Avatar n tn I have had severe pain in my left hip for a year now. I have had the hip joint frozen twice now and the pain totally went away so am sure it is coming from the hip and not back. The pain is a grabbing pain when I rise from a sitting position or getting in and out of the car and crossing my leg or putting on my shoe or sock is not possible. It is very uncomfortable to sit for any length of time. I am only comfortable when I sit with my legs straight out on the couch or in bed.
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 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..
1388332 tn?1285350047 Have you checked with your Doctor at all concerning this pain in your Hip? You might be encountering the beginnings of Osteoarthritis in your Hip Joint. I've lived with that for the past 36 years. I've had 2 hip implants and I'm getting ready for a third in September. It would benefit you to make an appointment with your PCP (Family Doctor) and see what they think and depending what they discover from possibly some x-rays go on to either an Orthopedic Specialist or a Rheumatologist.
Avatar m tn It happens EVERY time that someone puts off having this type of surgery. It turns out that the WORST thing that can happen is to put OFF this hip surgery as your PERMANENTLY injure your back and there is NO WAY around it. I REALLY believe that YOUR Surgeon is correct that your back is your biggest problem now and you REALLY would benefit IF you would go to a PM - Pain Management - Doctor that can help you through your back pain. I was VERY fortunate as MY PM ALL my pain from my lower back.
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 n tn Well the shot only lasted a month and I was so afraid of having surgery on my hip that I put off going back to the doctor until this month becuase I can hardly sit or stand with out having some type of pain and when I drive it really hurts. The doctor said that usually the cysts that are in my hip joint are caused by a labaral tear so he had me get a MRI Arthorgram and found out that I had a tear.
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 Is there any help in sight ? I am 38 yr old male - very active & thought very heathy, 6ft 1 5% bfi & gym 3+ days a week. Chronic neck & hip Osteoarthritis & 24-7 pain breaking me down fast - not able to ignore it any longer & otc meds not helping. Surgery not a $$ option at this time. Neck is spured & chunchy & pretty much killing me - Hip is very narrowed & full of cysts. I guess I am asking... what can I do ?
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 m tn ) I'm hoping you haven't finished all of your trips as of yet and hope this can give you a little bit of relief when traveling. I've had 3 hip implants in my left hip and I'm getting ready to have my 1st hip implant in my right hip on October 28th of this year. Now when I travel I always get wheelchair assistance to help me from gate to gate. This takes an immense amount of stress off of my hips, back and legs and definitely it helps keep the pain at bay. This allows.
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 m tn This is associated with focal defects in the immediately adjacent articular cartilage of the femoral head and the acetabulum. Impression 1. Osteoarthritis of the right hip characterized by degenerative tearing of the labrum and focal defects in the articular cartilage. 2. The contour of the femoral head and the appearance of the acetabulum on the pelvis x-ray suggests that the patient is likely impinging due to both pincer and CAM type morphology.
1522912 tn?1292053850 A repeat dopplar study of the involved leg should be done to rule out inflammation of veins, lymphatics and clots in veins. A MRI of the inflamed area should be done.
233501 tn?1226478134 You hear the inevitable news that you have osteoarthritis of the hip joint. The only treatment that will relieve your pain is replacement of the hip joint…(www.hipresurfacingindia.com) This is the relentless jargon of patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the hip. The conventional hip replacement involves cutting the head of femur (thigh bone) and replacing it with a metal ball. The diseased acetabulum is replaced with a high density polyethylene cup.
