Major Hip Muscle Removal Questions

halding posted:
Doctor,

I am going to have my iliacus, rectus femoris, psoas, and my illopsoas tendon removed. My Doctor was not too clear on what kind of condition my leg would be in after as far as strength...he just told me it varies. Do you know what I can expect? Will I have to use a cane, be able to walk normally, or possibly still be able to run? I really need to get some additional information on this. Can you help?
