Brief Answer:
Get xray done.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have read your query.

Pain in hip joint tells that there may be some infection still there or there may be some osteolysis in that hip joint.

Its good that your blood work was 7.5, but I want to see the present condition of your hip joint and so please get your fresh xray of affected hip with pelvis done in AP and Lateral view and send me the report.

I also want to know whether you have fever, weightloss, night sweat ?


If you are taking some antibiotics, please send me the name of it.

I hope you have got your answer.

Thanks.

Dr.Singh.

Get E.S.R, mantuox test done.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query again.

Myfriend, for night-sweats and temperature you need to get, E.S.R, mantuox test done and send me the report. If these tests are with in normal limits then yous should not be worried about your symptoms as they would go away with time, but still you should have regular follow up with your doctor who had operated you.

Please upload your previous xrays if you have, I want to see your hip joint.

I hope you got it.

Thanks.

Dr.Singh.
