Less movement in hip after op 6mths later
« on: June 28, 2008, 08:01:42 PM »
Hi, i`m 6mths post-op of BHR. I didn`t have much movement in hip rotation pre-op but have even less now.Still get alot of aching and pain also.When sitting i can only lift my leg 1-2 in of floor,still can`t twist it inwards to put on trousers,underwear or even my shoe`s.If lying down i can`t lift it up more than 2in.Standing i can lift it to just below knee height. Physio hasn`t helped,they now referring me to hydrotherapy, they say is very very weak or maybe  nerve damage during op.My consultant is stumped, bless him he`s be great really.He was the only person who was willing to try this as i have synovial chrondromatosis of my left hip which was causing the problem of my hip locking.The cartliage grow,splits it in to the joint and hardens into bone,then rolling round and getting stuff causing it to lock. Up to yet no-one else has had BHR for this cause, so i was a trial :o.
As onyone else had less movement and rotation after BHR, as it got better after time.

I am 60 days or so post op rt hip resurfacing.
I do not have the complications you refer to but my range
of motion post operation is very very similar to yours.

See comments under recovery and physical therapy.

What have you been doing to increase the ROM ?

Hi Venessa

I am sorry to hear you are still having very difficult problems after 6 months.  A few people have had problems for a year or two.  Generally they get most of them solved.

It sounds like you need to talk with your doctor more or find a doctor that knows more about your problem.  Who was your doctor?

Maybe you need a better PT program to work on your ROM.

I am sorry I can't tell you more since I am not medically trained.  I do hope you find a solution and hope you will continue to keep us posted.

We all hate to hear when people are having problems and can understand how you feel.
