... I am a 47 year old male and I have had a hip problem for over 16 years. My ortho. says that I need a hip replacement but, I could wait until I'm 55 if I think I can manage living with the pain and discomfort. I don't know what to do? ... (13 replies)

... day of physical therapy in the rehab facility was not enough in my opinion.

... Thigh pain that develops some months after a THR is not uncommon. The cause is "stress shielding", which means that the weight of the body is going down through the stem of the inplant (ie down through the middle of the remaining thigh bone) and radiating out at the tip of the stem.

The aching in the thigh may be stem end pain, which... (4 replies)

My question is I get a lot of soreness in the side of the thigh and above the knee is this... (4 replies)
