After mh spinal fusion over a year ago it was a normal recovery. Last year November I noticed my hip hurts when I put all my weight on it and causes me to limp. Any advice

    Was your fusion a long fusion?  I ask because a year out of a 10 level scoli fix i still have hip pain.....and my surgeon said 1-2 years to recover fully....

    Best thing is to see your doctor and make sure nothing is going on in your hip (like arthritis or something) and that all the hardware still looks good and then go from there....
