I had left knee replacement surgery 3 months ago. About

I had left knee replacement surgery 3 months ago. About 4 weeks after surgery, I started having a lot of right hip/buttocks pain especially when walking or climbing stairs. However, also painful to touch or lying on that side. X-rays show only minimal arthritis. I've been doing physical therapy, but no improvement.

I have had total hip replacement on my left hip in 2005 and 3 months ago I had total knee replacement on my right knee. Now I am experiencing sharp as well as achy pain in my right groin. It is similar to the pain that caused me to have the other hip replaced. Do you think that I most likely should have my right hip replaced?

Hi, I have been told that I need a knee replacement over a year ago. The pain has been getting progressively worst. I have been getting steroid injections every 3 month, which helps for a few weeks, I have been taking lyrica, which helps, but I sleep alot and can not drive. Any other suggestions, other than a knee replacement. I am 54yrs old and have been on several meds. Nothing works but the lyrica. thanks

Yes, I am looking at having a replacement lt knee as serve real surgeries years ago and a failed ACL replacement using part of my patella also. I have for the most part been making do with strengthening what I have for the past 10-12yrs in the hope I could get close to 60 yrs of age before having this op. I have reached 50yrs old and now find I suffer far more pain and swelling and the. Time has come. I fear that the artificial replacement may wear out and want this op to be something that will last me out. I have been recommended to a Mr Reinhart Wuttke from myGP. I have looked. Him up this morning on line and an not find him listed under the Australian Orthopedic register. Can you please offer me some clarification.
