Is anyone who's had a TKR getting pain in the Hip on the same side as the TKR?

I was in agony last night with both knee and Hip

    I totally understand this jean I mentioned it to the physio and he said it's to do with the fact the your walking properly now the knee has been done. I've also had major problems with my good knee and have been in horrendous pain. Hope your pain settles down soon x

      Thank you Joanne

      i was beginning to think I was falling apart....and I too have felt pain in my good knee.

      but nothing like the hip pain

      it's so good to realise I'm not on my own

    Morning Jean,

    Not hip pain, but my good knee is really playing up.  Seeing the consultant soon about op number 2 and dreading it.

    Hi Jean, I haven't had pain in hip but am learning that pain can occur anywhere in the leg after this op as the whole leg is realigned. Check it out with your physio if you're still seeing one if it doesn't improve. This op is one big pain isn't it!

      Interesting about leg realignment.  Some days I feel my ankle 'catches'. Find it disconcerting as I'm walking.  Still feel quite nervous.  Inside fine, but outside a little scary.  All a matter of regaining full confidence, whenever that might be!

      Hi 

      I go to see my Surgeon on Wednesday so I will check it out with him and let you all know what he says

      it seems as if one thing leads to another ...sigh...I often wondered why I bothered

    Dear Jean ,   I am five weeks post op and I too have had hip pain on the operated knee side which despite other major back problems, I have not had before. The surgeons say it is the new realigned, straight knee that causes it and that it will adjust.

    i cannot lie on that side and have rearranged the furniture to lie on my left side to watch tv! At night I drape a low heat heating pad over the hip and buttock and that is a bit of a comfort ....

      Hi 

      that's a good idea about the heat pad ..I do have one of those as I too have  cronic back problem

      i can only lay on my right side the same side as the TKR ...I usually manage a couple of hours sleep then read until my eyes get droopy ...then sleep again 

      but at least I do get a bit of sleep 

      I feel as if I'm not doing as well as some others on these sites ..but I do work hard at the exercises.

      I dread the thought of ever needing the  manipulation under anasthetic as some poor people have to go through

      Oh well

      onwards and upwards ....it will soon be Xmas ....lol

      Hi jean i have started to get twinges in my hips when I'm walking, I have been using my hot water bottle both day and night, it does give a lot of relief. Don't you just get fed up with these continuos set backs. I do. Still wish I had never had it done. Best wishes Father Christmas will sort you out. I have written to him already don't want lots of gifts. Just my old knee back lol love from tucks

      i often wish I'd never bothered having it done

    Have you been checked for possible stenosis. Often times hip and groin pain are back related and only the docs can tell. There is a nerve that runs from the back to the hip and down the leg to the knee and then to the foot. If its in a bind so are you. Maybe a little heat on your back and hips would help
