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.

Swelling and Itching
« on: March 28, 2012, 01:59:17 AM »
I am 8 days post-op LHR.  Today my hip swelled up so much it looks like a giant Country Ham.  I don't really have an unusual amount of pain.  I knew there would be some swelling, but I did not anticipate this.  The hip and thigh feel hard as cement.  I have no swelling below the knee.

Also -- I am itchy all over.  I have been told this is a reaction to the anesthesia. 

Has anybody else experienced this type of swelling or itchiness?
