ihad both tkr in 2011 and am now due a hip replacement but not only have i got the pain in the hip i now have severe pain in the knee on the same leg what is the cause of this
Hip problems I understand can refer pain to the knee and vice versa, especially if it affects your walking gait and mobility.
The only solution is to go back and have an x-ray and other examinations to see what is going on.
I have hip pain since the TKR but they tell me it is due to walking badly, I'm not so sure as I have OA in several joints but I'm hoping to avoid more surgery for a while.
Hi I'm told after numerous tests that the pain in my knee is referred pain coming from my hip, I still don't understand but I have had xray, MRI and nothing is found, I hope that once you have had your op it will clear up, are you icing your hip and knee that might help, I'm hoping others will come on and give you more advice, what has your consultant said
It's referred pain from the hip. I had a lot of knee pain but just a bit in the hip. Docs thought it was the knee but did an MRI of the hip WITH CONTRAST. Showed that 30% of my hip was dead. Knee was fine.
Had the hip done...4 days hospital...six days rehab joint and then I started my own rehab. One day with a PT but six days a week, 5 hours a day in a therapy pool and gym. Full and total recovery in six weeks...like it never happened. Pushed the hell out of it...which you can't do with a knee. Worked out great.
