Hello,

Your symptoms could be suggestive of possible deformation of the joint. For this reason, I recommend performing an X-ray study of the hip in order to be sure that the protesis is in the right place.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
