Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Nerve Pain, Numbness in Quad
« on: March 29, 2011, 06:53:01 PM »
So I'm a little over 6 months post op (BHR, right hip, 9/21/10), and things are going along alright.   I never had any PT post-op (Dr Klug doesn't typically assign PT), and I haven't really felt like it was necessary.

I live in Northern California, in an area which receives snow - and this year, we've been slammed with it.   Over the last couple months, I've spent a significant amount of time shovelling the stuff or running the snowblower, which has taken a toll on my leg - no excruciating pain or anything, but the joint will ache for a day or so and then return to normal. 

I'm more concerned about the numbness/soreness of my quad.   I know that the numbness could last for the rest of my life, but it seems like after exertion above and beyond normal, day-to-day activity, my quad has a weird combination of numbness and pain.   Is this "normal"?   On the surface, it feels like nerve pain, but if I rub my quad, the muscle is very sore.  This takes a lot longer to recede.

I'm thinking that this is probably normal after a HR (I was told the full recovery period would be between 6-12 months, and I'm just outside 6), but are there any suggestions to manage this (not shovelling/snowblowing is NOT an option...   ;)   ) this?    Would it be appropriate to see about some physical therapy at this point?

I strongly believe in PT to strengthen muscles around the hip joint as well as all those affected in your leg. It really helps

I just had my 2 week post op and deal with same numbness and tingling. Doc said it was a good sign of healing and nerve repair. alsp dont forget to strengthen hamstrings. Your quads could be over working.
