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.

Noise from hip joint
« on: February 14, 2014, 03:36:21 PM »
I've never heard any noise from my resurfaced hip joint, but I read an article on this site by Dr. Pritchett that cited a study that tested for noise coming from hip implants and found that every device in the study made substantial noise. This noise however was usually at frequencies above the audible range for humans. But metal shell components like those used for resurfacing and ceramic devices created the lowest frequency noise and is why they sometimes are heard.

My question is, I can't hear any noise from my hip but do my pets hear the hip squeaking?

I never heard any from mine, but did notice that my dogs refused to come near me when I was dehydrated. Coincidence? I think not.

Interesting.  I don't have any noise either, but if it will keep my neighbor's cats out of my flower beds I'll start exercising out there:)

I find this interesting. Before my surgery, my hip made all kinds of noise. I was never sure if anyone could hear it, but I sure felt it. It was like what many people have described in these forums after their HR. I am almost six weeks out and have not experienced any "clunking." I wonder if it is be cause my physical therapist really helped me strengthen my hip and leg before the surgery. Preparation hurt, but really seems to have helped rehab.

this weekend I experienced a funny feeling while binding my shoe laces. nothing you can hear, it was like a vibrating, running down the muscle feeling, it started deep inside the hip. only for a second or so. is this "clunking"?
..... I will find out

As for me, what i consider clunking is the very mechanical gear shifting feeling that i had after my first surgery.

I never heard anything. But have felt the clunk in the hip which became less and less and now if it does happen I no longer notice it. Maybe because the other old boney thing on the other side is now cluncking and making noises of its own.

It may be. Your body is going through so much in readjusting to the more linear you, that things will be discombobulated for a bit. 

It may also be slight muscle spasms. That can be helped by hydration.

hydration should be no problem for me. due to my diet I drink between 2 and 3 l per day. I am also not concerned, I only want to know what "clunking" is.
when I experienced that feeling, I thought that, maybe, a muscle moved over the metal implants. since last weekend I am able to bind my shoe laces, so its new. my left side never makes any problem, something funny always happens on the right side.
Thomas and a friend of us watched me doing it. sitting on a chair I bend down and from the inside of my left leg I have done it left sided. when coming to my right shoe, later they told me, I tried it from the "outside" of my leg. 
..... I will find out
