    hip revision surgery

    My sister had a total hip replacement 1 1/2 years ago. The incision recently swelled up, got very red and hurts when she gets in and out of bed and in and out of the car. Her pcp said it looked fine (no way) and her physical therapist said it was scar tissue. I pushed my sister to go see her surgeon. Today he seemed very concerned. On Monday she has to go for a needle aspiration to see if she has an infection. If it's superficial then she takes antibiotics but if its deep then she will need another....

    RA, fibro, degenerate disk, hip replacement, osteoarthritis

    I've had 2 lumber back surgies on the same disk, l4/l5 in my 30's. I'm 52 now and have been fighting with neck pain for about 10 years. I continue to go to a pain management center for procedures for both my neck and lower back, but I'm so tired of my neck pain so I went back to my surgeon last month because I was ready for neck surgery. My neck has gotten worse in the last 5 years since I saw him last, but since I have issues with every disk in my neck he doesn't want to fuse....

    Side Effects of Cortisone Injection

    On Friday I received a fairly routine cortisone injection in my left knee. I have had issues with this knee for over ten years now, even had minor surgery on it to clean it out and remove a lot of the arthritis. So I had this injection done Friday afternoon and later that day, my knee hurt so bad. It was a sharp aching pain. Overnight it only got worse and upon waking up this morning, I could barely put any weight on it. Right now the skin over my knee is red and very warm. I am currently laying....

    Post Traumatic Arthritis - left wrist...10 years ago?

    I just had arthroscopic surgery to debride a completely torn TFCC. During the surgery, my doctor discovered I have virtually no cartilage in my entire wrist. My arthroscopic photos - compared to a normal wrist - are horrible with so much bone on bone and tears showing. I am 40 years old (female) and am now facing a lot of pain management planning while considering fusion surgery. I have done a lot of thinking and I do recall an event nearly 10 years ago where I fell and landed on my left wrist while....

    groin pain with new hip replacement

    I had my left hip replaced a week ago. I'm 48 years old. I know it's only been a week, but I am concerned about groin pain and quad pain I am having. It seems different than pain I've experienced before (had the right hip replaced 6 years ago). Should I be concerned at this point? I will see the dr. on Jan. 5th but wondered if I should contact him earlier-I don't want to be a needy patient, though. Thanks for any info you can share.
