Shin pain after hip replacement

Marisant posted:
Hello!
I had my right hip replaced in Dec. 2011. I recovered quickly. However for the past few weeks my right and left(not as much) shins have been painful when I walk. Could this be due to the THR? I seem to limp again because of the pain.

Hello,

No, not likely especially if it has been many months and involvement of both sides. This may be functional tendinitis or shin splints from you pushing yourself physically more.
