I had a total replacement hip right one...on 2003...im having a lotss pf pain.. my doctor send me for a bone scan... i have the report and says that
Three-phase bone scan targeted to both hips reveal symmetrical perfusion in the angiographic or first phase.

The second or blood pool phase images also reveal no asymmetric increased tracer uptake in the right hip.

The third or bone phase images show a photopenic area in the right hip corresponding to the right hip prosthesis. Very mild increased tracer uptake at the interface of the prosthesis and the native bones is seen consistent with routine and normal postoperative changes.

Just found out I have a fracture of the base of the right pubic ramus with the acetabular screw extending into the base of the right superior pubic ramus. Will I need another surgery, I am in a lot of pain when I stand.

One year ago, I had a total hip replacement of my right hip. Now I am experiencing pain in the right hip area. The doctors checked with xrays of the area, and could give no answer, because they said the hip replacement was doing great. What else could it be?
