Muscle weakness
An_255312 posted:
I had a total hip replacement just over two years ago. An Exeter hip. After 22 physio sessions, lots and lots of walking I still cannot walk more than 100 yards before my muscles at the back of the thigh and down into the calf start aching. At the same time I lose strength in the leg, if I continue walking the ache gets much worse. Can anyone tell me, what could be the cause, and how can I put it right. Even though I paid the thick end of 10 grand to have this op done privately , the surgeon comes up with nothing at all. I was in severe pain before the op and I am grateful for that to have been solved. However, the muscle problem is keeping me off the golf course, except with a buggy, and the long walks I used to enjoy are a thing of the past
