Charley horse after THR
elizabethames posted:
I had a THR on 2/28. Walking alright but having severe painful cramping in the buttock, thigh and calf of the affected leg. Taking flexoril but getting in and out of bed triggers the cramping. To stretch out the cramp I would have to break precautions. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
