Avatar f tn Troy had his hip-replacement surgery.
Avatar n tn It was theorized that new clot formed after the Plavix was stopped and embolized when it was resumed since he suffered a right MCA stroke 21 days post op. He is now on Coumadin and needs right hip replacement. Bridging with Lovenox pre and post op is planned. Should he have TEE during or after this surgery? If clot is detected how would it be treated? Would Pradaxa be considered instead of Coumadin post op? Thank you for your input.
Avatar m tn As for the hip replacement, it would require 3-7 day hospital stay after which physiotherapy is initiated; while complete recovery may take almost 3-6 months. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar n tn My husband suffered a stroke caused by a fatty embolism after hip replacement surgery in January of 2002. He has a high stress, long hour executive position and went back to work approximately 3 months following his surgery and stroke. Recently his boss has told him that he feels my husband has lost his "edge", doesn't shift priorities fast enough, takes too many notes, etc. This has been a blow to my husband as he's not sure if it's true or not.
Avatar n tn I had a hip replacement 10 years ago. Everything has been great! No pain whatsoever. In the last two years I had a terrible bout with plantar fasciitis. Recently I am having shin splint pain only on the new hip side! Are these problems related to the hip replacement? If so, is it time for a new hip? I'm a 65 year old female with few health issues!

Avatar n tn Broke hip 07/1998; went for repairs, and after four months was advised not healing; Had total hip replacement 01/1999. Since the 1998 surgery, my hip burns badly enough that I am limited in activity. Sitting, standing, walking are almost prohibited. Sometimes hip will burn for days, 24/7. Other times there are respites. Many nights, the burning lasts until 2 a.m. or even 4 a.m..

Avatar m tn I recently went to my orthopedic doctor and he said I have hip buritis. Is this normal after a hip replacement? Can it cause muslce spasms and extreme pain while driving, walking, bike riding, sleepign or even sitting? Is this a warning symptom of something to look out for?
Avatar f tn He was very clear that ANY weight-bearing could negatively impact the bone healing. He was also clear that if the healing did not occur, a total hip replacement was not an option due to the location of the break ("too low"). - my understanding is that due to the osteoporosis, and the possible damage done after the surgery, the screw might work its way out of the bone, and "pop" free. If this occurs, and if a hip replacement can not be done, what are the other options?

Avatar n tn On August 7, 2008 ( his third day back at work light duty) he was walking when his femur fractured, that evening he had a total hip replacement. He had more pain after the second surgery and muscle weakness, we were told it was because he had two surgeries in 7 weeks, Almost a year later he suffers from severe to mild pain even when sitting still. He has had blood tests, x rays, cortisone shots, and a bone scan.

Avatar f tn Now the doctor says she needs a hip replacement. Is this unusual to happen so quickly after being diagnosed? She is on Actemra once a month, and Methotrexate weekly. I don't know questions to ask the doctor.
