Old pain returning
« on: December 15, 2010, 09:22:38 PM »
Had a left BHR in October 2009, made a reasonable recovery although seemed to take its time, maybe a result of previous osteotomies on same hip.
After one year things had been feeling so good I tried a couple of short jogs, which felt pretty good I decided to return to 5 aside soccer.
I had read all the surgeons advice regarding returning to contact sports and all appeared positive.
I had played about six games in six weeks and was feeling better and better.
Unfortunately I had a small fall last Friday in a tackle, although I was able to continue and felt ok the next day I have since felt that something has changed. There is a lot more creaking, thigh. knee and hip pain.
I am worried that the femoral component may have moved. It may be too early for an X-ray to determine anything, but has anybody had a similar trauma and recovered without further intervention?
If this all settles down I will give up the contact sport and stick with golf and walking.

If you are having shooting pains up and down your leg that are related to putting weight and/or having problems when you walk on it it might not be a bad idea to have your surgeon get a look at a new x-ray.

I've read many cases where the pain was soft tissue related that went away in a week or so, I've had 3 big falls on my operated side and not had any problems so far other than being sore as heck for a week or so.

Try ice and ibuprophen (if you're allowed them) and rest for a couple of days, see if that helps.

I had a similar episode at 1 year and 1 month.  I was worried I screwed it up and was preparing myself for the repair surgery when it stop hurting after 2 weeks. 

Most say you are completely healed at 1 year but I notice big improvements at 18 months and kept improving even at my 2 years mark. (I am at 28 months).

Hello Geeod,

I had a similar issue a few weeks back and did just as the others suggested below and it turned out just fine.  I to was a bit concerned, but took some Ibuprophen and rested, did a few ice treatments.  I also have the blessing of my own electro stimulation machine so added that to the mix and i am back to my improving self.  It takes about a week or two to recover from the hard blow but recovery is available.  Oh, i did start with some prayer as i really didn't want to go back under the knife!  All is well now at week three!

All the best,

Big "O"
