    I had a total knee replacement done on 9/11/2013. released for full activity 11/1. doing tremendous.. until mid February this year.. I am having extreme groin pain in the opposite leg. limping.. cant lift my leg well.. shoes and socks are really tough. I am being treated for llioposas tendinitus - in that hip.. getting steadily worse.. don't go to the Y any more - no more biking. lots of lower back pain as well. I have had 2 back surgeries ( 20+ years ago) L4 andL5. I am thinking this is transmiting pain to my hip. x ray of it shows - maybe some day it may need to be replaced but - does not account for the current level of pain or restriction. I am walking funny - and putting strain on just about everthing.. forget sleep.. really don't know what to do. tres miserable
