  1. anita slater anita slater United States says:

    Had Total left hip replacement 5 months ago. Dislocated it 2 times within first 2 weeks, Have had severe pain in lower neck,,& shoulder on opposite side. But pain radiates down to lower back into middle of buttocks into groin area down middle of thigh then toward outer side of left hip where surgery was done. I’m Limping now & pain is awful sitting, standing,or walking. Hip has been x-rayed showing healing is fine but this pain persists. I also fell once during this time. I’ve had sciatica problems in the past & had nerve endings (burned) which helped for a year or so then procedure was repeated 2 more times over several years. I have degenerative disk disease with both knees replaced. Do I need a cat scan done or go back to pain management dr. to see what he thinks is wrong? I’ve hurt for months now with no relief. I’ve tried heat, cold, all kinds of ointments & pain just persists. Please help as Hospiceishelping mew/my terminal ill husband who has cancer. I’ve just got to find out what’s wrong & FIX IT! Help me........
