I had a left hip replacement (depuy pinnacle) on (b)(6) 2009 and ever since (b)(6) 2010 i have had a problem which keeps getting worse.
I have difficulty standing still for any length of time.
If i stand for 10 minutes shaving, i am in severe pain for the rest of the day.
I can only sleep on my right side.
I cannot sleep on my back or left side at all because the pain is too much.
I cannot food shop, clothes shop or shop period because i cannot walk for any length of time.
Unless my activity includes sitting such as the movies, out to dinner or the doctor's office, i cannot go out.
The quality of my life has deteriorated.
I am in worse shape now then i was before i got my hip replaced.
When i saw the doctor who replaced my hip regarding my pain i was in he took an x-ray said everything was ok and don't bother wasting your co-pay coming back.
Nice!!! so now i have gone for a second opinion.
However, because this hip has not been recalled it seems no one really wants to make the tough decisions associated with a hip replacement gone bad.
I would like some relief which i do not seem to be able to get.
Help! help! help me please! give me my life back! the only common denominator is a hip replacement.
I had a left hip replacement and now i cannot walk on my left leg for any period of time.
What else could it be? please everyone use your common sense.
On a scale of one to ten, my pain is usually a seven.
