11 days post total hip revision
kels0720 posted:
Hi all,
I am 31, and 10 days ago had a revision of a total hip replacement that I had done 2 weeks earlier. There was a significant leg length discrepancy that needed to be corrected. I attempted to go without rx pain medication today, but realized an hour and a half after I was due for it that I was still in need of it. I took the meds, and spent the day up in a chair, sorting through some drawers and playing with my daughter. Tonight, I'm experiencing the worst pain I have had since this whole experience started, and it is scaring me. I don't know if it's because I overdid it, being up and active all day, or whether my delay in taking meds this morning left me "behind" the pain... Anyone else remember having this experience? I don't have a fever, and my incision site looks fine...
Thanks so much,

Hi Kelsey,

It's now a few days later... how is the pain now?

Actually yes I did. You may have done too much too soon.
