Post surgical pain is often encountered.Any incision can result in damage to the sensory nerves in the area of the incision. Significant nerve damage, which may cause loss of muscle function, can occur after hip replacement.Major surgeries may cause damage to nerves.Your pain possibly is the result of the injured nerves.I feel sorry for you,but there are limited treatment options.
Hello,,is there any treatment that you know of that maybe i haven't already been through? I've also had a decompression on C4,5,6 &7,then for 2 slipped disks,,so i've pretty much been through it all,,the 3 major surgries were all within a year. Somedays it's just so hard to keep going,but i am trying to do the best i can,i hate complaining all the time about pain,it's just taken a toll on me these last 2 years.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

hi, in 2006 i was diagnosed at 42yrs old with aggresive osteo-arthritis and had bilateral hip replacements in 2006 then a revision of left hip 6 months later as the first one had failed. i have sufferred with hip pain ever since. i have numbness down my right leg from incision to knee. my left leg is 2 inches shorter than the right, i wear a built up shoe & i take regular analgesia. i was medically retired from my job as a nurse. i have been back and forth to the orthopaedic doctors, pain clinic, GP etc i have had xrays that say normal. the medical lot seem to think its all in my head. i am severely limited in mobility and no-one seems to help. any advice on offer ???
I also have severe pain after hip replacement. I am 67 years old and when I was young I did have two lower back laminectomies. A friend of mine told me that she takes a low dose of methadone and it is like a miracle. She had no more pain, does not get a high from it, and says there is no tolerance to that medicine. Do you recommend the use of methadone for chronic pain?
