Sitting and clicking
« on: December 19, 2008, 09:53:31 PM »


Hello Everyone ,



I am at 11 days post op and have been feeling much more mobile (with two crutches) The last two days I have been finding myself sitting at a chair most of the day and not much time laying down. Not sure if this is good or bad but I feel fairly comfortable. I did read in an old post about the clicking sensation which I have experienced this a few times today and it has me a little concerned but it seems like quite a few people have had this sensation ?

I had direct anterior resurfacing on December 10 on my right leg.  About 3 day ago, I also noticed a clicking when sitting or walking.

When I am sitting in a chair (e.g., kitchen table) and I bounce my right leg, the clicking is in the sit bone of my butt on my right side. 

When I walk, I also get an occasional clicking.

I went to the doctor today and they said it was normal and would subside over time.  I am hoping this is the case.

Happy holidays!

Steve ,



I hope you are doing well. I researched the clicking a bit more and feel a bit more relieved especially after your post !

George,

Clicking is quite normal, sometimes called clunking too.

If that clicking/clunking is incuded with very sharp pain, call your doctor, if not have all your relatives listen to it in amazement. If weight bearing causes you very sharp pain, call your doctor.

My hip clicked before too, that is how I knew it was my hip, I really did not need an ortho to tell me, I knew it.

The only thing I would add, don't sit or lay around too much, if your doctor allows weight bearing, walk with your crutches as much as your body will allow, just no more than your doctor allows.  I still get stiff and sore, but it's when I sit around on my butt too much.
