severe increasing thigh pain 18 months after THR -v scared

ScotslassSScotslass Posts: 9

I had a THR in Dec 209 due to arthritis

Have been left with a limp (normally slight) and balance problems due to nerve damage but in the past couple of weeks I have been experiencing excruciating pain in the front mid thigh region to the point it literally stops me in my tracks

I don't know when it is going to happen an when it does it makes me scream out and then I can do nothing....I just stand there scared/unable to move as the pain is so severe

I am worried this is a sign of something not good - has anyone else had this happen so late after surgery?

Any advice/insight would be greatly appreciated



  • I can't help you with any insight, but you might want to see your surgeon or G.P. and talk to them. Are you doing physiotherapy? A therapist may havr answers, too. If the pain is that bad, please get it checked. If it's nothing serious, at least your mind will be at ease.
