    hot flashes in the hip joint replacement
    jobee12 posted:
    I had an anterior hip replacement last of Oct/2012 and am doing fine except when I get these hot feelings in the hip joint replacement and sometimes they run down to my toes, is this anything to be concerned about?
    arbob5 responded:
    It could be nerve and/or tissue regeneration. The entire leg has some after effects from the surgery. I did have some "burning" sensations for a couple of weeks after my July 16, 2012 hip replacement. And that was the only real "negative" sensation I had, and it wasn't really that bad. When I questioned my ortho Dr. about it, he said it was normal and would eventually go away completely. It takes some people longer than others.

    Have you talked to your surgeon about this? I'm curious as to what he/she had to say. Let us know, OK? This is how we all sharing with each other. That is what makes this site so great and helpful.
