Sharp pain when standing. Is this normal?
« on: November 21, 2011, 10:03:36 PM »
So, many times when I stand up if I move a certain way (not sure which way it is) I get an aweful pain in my operated hip. It feels like it's in the backside of the hip and really stops me in my track.  The pain lasts about 30 seconds and I'm not really able to move until the pain goes away.  On a scale of 1-10 I would rate the pain around a 7.5.  I'm hoping this is just things shifting around but wanted to see if others are having or have had similar problems.

Pete, I've been getting similar but mine has felt like soft tissue damage.
Hope your well buddy.

I am 4 weeks out from surgery today.  I have put away the cane as of a few days ago, and I would second Danny's thoughts for the pain I feel- soft tissue.  Once I am up and moving, I am fine; I can walk 1- 1 1/2 miles with almost no noticeable limp now and at a good clip as well (about 20 min. per mile).  As you mentioned, though, it's the initial standing and "getting going" that is sometimes painful.  Mine is nowhere near a 7.5 out of 10, though; perhaps a 2-3 at most?  Maybe you are trying to do too much too soon?  I had to back off at the 2 week mark at my doctor's suggestion; I was already walking too much.  It is the hardest thing in the world to back off!  Good luck!

Pete, my experience has been about the same as Steve's.  I have not had the type of pain you describe.  If it continues, I think you definitely should call your doctor.  Probably, it is something perfectly normal, but don't take chances!  And as Steve said, be very careful not to overdo this early on!
