Customer Question
Can nerve damage be...

Can nerve damage be repaired in the hip and lower back?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes, my GP and a pain management doctor.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Since my hip operation which was required as the first hip operation 3 years ago went bad as the "ball" on the end of the leg shaft became loose. Walking and any putting weight on the left leg(where the hip was done) causes pain.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have mild osteoporothus and am on Fosomex
