    Hip osteoarthritis

    I have osteoarthritis in my left hip (moderate) which never caused me any problem until 3 mos ago I did some leg lifts and splits. Progressively I get worse everyday. Thinking I had pulled ligaments or muscle I expected it to heal. Now the hip pain is intolerable & I walk with cane and can barely lift right leg. Did my exercises cause this?

    Revision question

    I recently went thru a revision knee replacement. Originally having a partial, now a TKR.

What long term effects should i expect. Asking my surgeon would give the impression of lawsuit, but i just need honest answers.

I have started riding a stationary bike, working up to 30 minutes a day but wonder....
