Knee & Hip Problems Message Board

Knee & Hip Problems Board Index

I had my hip replacement in June last year and I am in terrible pain. My left leg is painful to touch, it burns, I cannot sit for more than a few minutes in a chair unless my legs are up. I have pain all down my leg to my toes when I sit in a straight chair.After I have walked a few yards my back aches from my waist to my shoulders,and my leg is extremely painful, my ankle is very painful and my foot and ankle is going black with what looks like varicose veins.By the time 3.30 comes around I have stiffened up so much I can barely walk. i expected after having this THR I would be able to reduce my morphine and other pain killers but instead I have had to have them increased and I also now take an anti-depressant Amitriptyline at night which acts as a muscle relaxant. I feel rather depressed with the whole thing and since I have had it done my other problems have flared up--fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis.I am going to see the consultant ( or one of his team) on Tuesday 4th but I don't think he will do anything to help.
Sorry I seem to be moaning I just feel rather blue and very old.
