Hi. Hope that everyone is doing well. Question to those of you that have had ankle fusions...have you started to have pain in your hip/hips?
I had a left fusion in May last yr, I’ve only been back at work full time for 4wks due to the kind of job I do. I’ve started getting pain in my right hip. I just thought I had slept funny at first but I have it pretty much all the time. Its worse when I go from sitting to standing and then walking is just awful.
I’m starting to really worry that my hip on my ‘good’ side has now decided to give up! I’ve had a lot of ortho surgery on my left ankle and I’m waiting to have the metal work taken out as it’s poking out underneath my skin. This will be my 8th ankle op and I’m also waiting for a CT Scan as my consultant thinks there is something else going on in the middle of my ankle.
This hip pain has got my floored, I’m struggling on at work and home but I’m pretty terrified that at some point I may need surgical correction of my hip!
Anyone else struggled with hip pain on the non op side post fusion???
