... in response to Hip Replacement Problems
  1. Robin Smith Robin Smith United States says:

    In July 2013 I had left hip replacement.  Over the last 2-3 weeks I am experiencing pain very similar to what I had before the hip was replaced.  The hip is especially painful at night again. I have no difficulty walking or standing from seated position.  "Sometimes" I feel like the hip is going to give out climbing stairs.  I had absolutely no complications after surgery.  My right hip was replaced last Sept. 2015 with no complications immediately after surgery or to this day  I have a one year check up appointment with my surgeon in a couple weeks.  I definitely plan on discussing the left hip pain with him at that appointment.  In the meantime, what could be causing the pain?

      Yes, me too.  Hip operation about same time as you Robin.  No complications, BUT from day one, it never felt right.  I think the 'wrong' mattress in hospital does not help, but there are not enough of the right ones to go round.  Also, the folk who shout the loudest get them!  Cannot sit comfortably for longer than 15 minutes and travel in a car is excruciating.  I can walk, but when I rise I have to hold the front of the hip and groin to get up at all!  Not happy one bit.  Surgeon?  Nice man, shame about the attitude - "I don't make mistakes" - really?......
