WEAKNESS AND PAIN IN THIGH AFTER HIP RELACEMENT

OJOJ64; posted:
Hi Dr. Bolognesi and all,

I had a total hip replacement by the Hana method in May of 2010. I had a virtually pain free quick recovery. My incision area still hurts and it is tad numb, but really minor. My hip does not hurt anymore at all. About a week ago, I started having really bad pain and weakness in the front of the thigh of the operated leg. It has gotten worse and when I stand up it wanst to collapse on me. At my last doctors visit in September, I was given the all clear, and did not need to be seen till a 1 year follow up. He said everything looked good. Does anyone have a clue at all of what is up? I do not want to run to the doctor if this is normal. I do not know if it is my back with a pinched nerve or a pinch in the hip somewhere. Help! Thanks, Jo-Anna
