I broke my left hip 7 weeks ago due to falling down 8 flagstone steps. The pain was utterly excruciating. (I'm 65.) I had surgery the next day and miraculously, the pain vanished. However, on Monday l felt a strange pop in my thigh while decorating the Christmas tree and immediately, the same excruciating pain returned. Hubby carried me to car (I was screaming with pain), and took me to the ortho. The xrays showed a hairline fracture. (I suppose I had been overdoing it and the fracture came apart.) I asked if I could have surgery again to repair it, recalling that the surgery had made the pain vanish, but my doc said no. The hardware is already solidly in place, so essentially it's already been fixed. He said the only things that can help me now are pain meds and time. Ouch😒 I am living with a broken hip. Nobody should have to endure this much pain. Has anyone else suffered this? Any advice?
