Hi I'm 48 yrs old and had a hip revision. I was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at age 23 I had a surgery called a Ganz osteotomy and it was successful for about 15 years. The past 8 years I suffered bad hip pain to the point where I couldn't walk anymore. I decided to do a total hip replacement 6/16. I'm currently 9 months post op I have the best surgeon. I still have groin pain like I did pre-op I can't lift my leg up. I can't get in and out of my car with out using my hand to lift my leg to get in. The same when I get in and out of bed. I take a few steps then the pain gets really bad. I've gotten 2 hip Injections one in the hip joint and one in the psoas tendon it was ct guided and it didn't work I've gotten numerous X-rays ct scans Mars MRI and an ultrasound and they're all negative. I'm pretty sure it's the psoas tendon but my ortho said if it was the psoas the injection should of relieved the pain. I feel crazy cause my dr is world renown and he doesn't see anything. And he's been my ortho for the past 25 years. So I know he's really concerned. He really doesn't want to do exploratory surgery on me. He's gonna brain storm with other orthopedic surgeons and radiologist to see if they can pick up anything on my scans. Am I the only one that's going through this? Has anyone experienced this and if so did you find out what it is. I'm miserable and still on crutches.
Hi, Is it possible you might have some kind of nerve damage from your surgery!? Maybe a neorolgist could test you for nerve issues which can present like the issues your are experiencing. Am so sad you are in so much pain. I live with chronic pain and I know how very hard it is to deal with. I send my best wishes and hope you can find solution(s) to your issues. Sending a hug also. 🍀🤕🤞🏻
The only thing I can think of is complex regional pain syndrome. I don't know much about it but you can google it. I am a chronic pain patient and hear about it all the time in my pain sites. It is supposed to be a very painful condition. Otherwise I have no experience in the area for which you are having problems. I hope you get some relief soon. You should feel lucky though that you have a team of doctors that are still interested enough in your case to be studying it and still looking for answers.
