Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
When did this start?
about a month after the revisoon surgery
Actualy it was never right after the surgery
Are you there
Have you had any x rays recently?
x rays show nothing out of the ordinary. Lumbar & scaroiliac MRI's show nothing that should be causing this. My pain, neurologist, podiatrist & sports med drs think it's my hip. My hip dr seems to think this is normal. I am ready to make an appt with a hip / pelvic dr in Orlando for a more expert opinion. My sports dr has been handling trying to get past this point. But he is in the same practice as the dr who did the surgeries. I think he is hesitant to tell me tha this a botched job
1 reason i have been given is that the revised hip cup is larger than the original 1 & stops movements of the leg like I am having trouble with. To me that may be the case but I should have been advised before I had the surgery. I think something has happened / been done that has shortened/ injured the IT band.
I think the revised hip cup is too large, but whatever the case it is causing impingment otherwise you would be able to flex your hip.I have to recommend you get a second opinion
Would you go through a 3rd operation to fix this. Or can it be manipulated under anesthesia?
If it is impingement due to a large cup, you will need a 3rd operation
