Had two back surgeries in witch I was given steroids before, during and after the both surgeries. As a result I developed Avascular Necrosis in my right hip. It's been three weeks since my hip replacement and it's doing much better. Still quite a bit of pain but that should ease up.This is a great site! Very informative!! Thank You and God Bless you all!!!

I had Left THR April 8 1999, today is April 14th, and I am getting around with my walker fine. Luckily when we bought our house my wife insisted on a single level, so I don't have steps to worry about. I am already just about pain free and don't even get he stitches out for another week. My biggest problem is I already want to go and do, a no no I understand. We own a fairly large motor home, and as soon as I can figure out how to get in and out safely, me wife will learn how to drive it and we will be "go e Fishing". Any advice about traveling would be appreciated.

I was born breech with a dislocacted hip in Middlesborough, England in 1965. Had surgery at age 2. Moved to California in 1992. Surgery worked well until Sept 97 (Age 32) when on a long walk up and down the hills of San Fransisco I started to get the first signs of discomfort. In December 1997 I became pregnant and could not undergo any X-Rays and with the pregnancy the pain in my left hip increased as my pelvic muscles relaxed (as they do during pregnancy). After the arrival of my son in September 1998 - h d X-Rays and my local orthopedist in California informed me I would need a hip replacement within the next 10 years, but in the meantime I could take anti-inflammatory medication. However - when I saw his I was nursing my son - so that was not a viable op ion at this point. I requested a second opinion and was referred to an excellent doctor - the Chief Orthopedist at Stanford Medical Center. He was very supportive and offered me several options - which I am still considering. I have since moved to San Ant nio, TX which has added complications as I plan to try and have the Othopedist at Stanford carry out the surgery. Anyway - the pain is manageable at this point - with over the counter medication, but I know down the road a complete hip replacement will be necessary. This web site is a great place to keep updated and meet people in the same boat. Thanks for a great web site.

I had my THR in May of 1994. I spent two years convincing the doc that I was indeed in much pain. MRI and other test showed nothing. After many referrals to the "best orthos in la" I still had nothing the matter. I finally ended up in a wheelchair. M ortho did another MRI and found a small shadow. He did a THR and found two very large tumors and could not understand why it did not show in the MRI. He wrote a paper on it, I sure hope it helped someone else. In June of '97 I dislocated the thr, did something stupid....stooped to pick up a grand baby. In Dec. of 97 I dislocated it again and last week while visiting my daughter in Springfield MO I dislocated it again. I was leaving to come home and was on my ay to the airport. Needless to say I spent the next couple of days in the hospital. Each time they were able to do a closed reduction. I flew home against the advice of the ortho and was very glad to be home. I see my ortho this afternoon 4/12. I am tired of saying I was not doing anything wrong when I dislocated the last two times I think I will tell him I was skydiving and landed the wrong way. In the process of the past five years I was diagnosed with RA six months ago and the RD said the Ra could have caused the tumors. I am rambling but if anyone else has had the problems of dislocation I would appreciate their sharing of how the problem was solved.

As an overseas school principal, I was left with some very difficult choices when I noticed some groin problems about 9 years ago. Six years and three countries later, the pain got so bad that surgery was the only option. My doctor in Amman, Jordan had been trained in Ireland, so he suggested I have it done there. My Surgeon in Ireland was Darragh Hines at Mater Private Hospital in Dublin. He and the hospital were absolutely terrific. However, my new concern is possible infection. I've been running a low grade fever for about three months now, and no one can figure it out. Today I'll see another OS so that we can look at infection in one of the hips which may be the cause. This is not a prospect that I look forward to!

I have had my replacement for one year and four months. I am sure glad they have hip-replacements or I would be in a wheelchair. My right leg was crushed in an car wreck. At times I still limp because of the soreness but some days it never bothers me. hat is something I don't quite understand. I don't complain to people about it because I know they don't want to hear it.

I found this site about a month ago after looking for info on hip replacements after scheduling my first THR for 4/28/99. I've had arthritis in both my hips and knees for a few years but never knew that it was this bad. In October of 1997 I had spinal surgery due to a cyst inside the spine that I didn't know about) that had solidified. There was no other option but surgery so after having pain for 6 more months I had it cut out resulting in a fusion and brackets( I was out of work for 5 months). I still had terrible pain in my left knee almost like a knife so they told me to get an MRI. That showed nothing but arthritis so they did a scope thing. Nothing showed up so after a few more months I talked to my spinal surgeon again and he said that they'd X-ray my hip(he said heaven forbid I have a problem there). Guess what the X-ray showed no cartilidge on my left hip and a bone cyst. He sent me off to his associate that did my husband's knee replacements last year saying if I tell you who you have to see will you know what you have to have done? That was 8 months ago. I figured I could hold out for a while, but by December I started having to use a cane when walking any distance. I knew the time was rapidly coming that I'd have to have the THR or not have any kin of life that I used to have. It scares me what else is going to happen after the THR, but I hope and pray that this will solve my pain for awhile. I know in the future I will probably need to have my other hip and knees done but hopefully they will last ill I'm older. I am coming to terms with having the surgery in 18 days and that I will be out of work another few months have even invested in some wing chairs for the living room since they make me sit higher. This site has answered many questions that I' e had and given me information that I never realized I'd need (how to measure the chair height, garbage bags to help you get out of the car, shaving legs, etc). Thank You Linda and all the others that have given to this site you've made it easier for us.

Comments:
Here's my story so far: My congenital dislocation (both sides) was discovered at birth, and treated right away using the standard treatments of the era. Unfortunately I was an exceptionally strong and wriggly child, and managed to bend, break, or escape from any brace or cast th y put me in. Somehow the right one engaged, but the left was a problem. By the time I had surgery (first one about 8 months) the left side was deformed. It took about 3 attempts to give me some kind of joint to walk on while I grew up. It didn't hurt, but my left leg was short and the movement was restricted. At about 3 I was also diagnosed with scoliosis, and wore a body brace until I was 15. The least said about that the better. I'm still dealing with the emotional consequences (like feeling physically sick whenever I see a brace). Also at 15 I started getting pain in my left hip. I ignored it, denied it, and battered on through it for about 8 years while it got progressively worse. Then I decided to see someone about it, and the British National Health Service (NHS) ground into ac ion. It took a year to get to see my old surgeon, and then another 5 months to get to the one he referred me to. Good job this isn't life threatening! I was advised that THR was the best option to deal with the pain and get more movement, but to hold off for 'as long as I could stand it'. I decided in October 1998 that I couldn't stand it any more. I had no quality of life (no life!). I was depressed, m painkillers were making me sick, I couldn't have children, I couldn't love my partner, I virtually couldn't work. I'm now on the NHS waiting list for THR, and much more positive about things. This web site has been instrumental in helping me maintain a positive attitude. I found it in December 1998, and suddenly it felt like I wasn't alone any more. There's a whole b nch of people out there who understand. Thanks Linda and everyone else for your support.

I started having pain in my left hip last summer. I had had surgery on a ruptured disk (neck) the previous fall, and was given steroids for pain. After seeing different Doctors,  was told that I had AVN, and needed core decompressions. I had one in November, and one in February. I am still in great pain and the Doctor says to give it time. People I talk to in rehab tell me it does not get any better. While I a scared of hip replacements, I do not choose to live like this. Can anyone give me advice before I try to pressure the Doctor to take more action, like hip replacement surgery. If I stay like this much longer I will be less able to spend quality time with friends and family.

Comments:
I was born with dislocated hips. It wasn't discovered until I was 18 months old. I had 3 operations before the age of 3 and was in body casts until 5 years old. I did well until the age of 18. Went back to Dr. DePalma at Jefferson and he told me to wa t until the age of 21. My bones had not stopped growing. In 1967, I spent two months in Jefferson in a complete body cast recovering from a DePalma Cup Arthroplasty. In 1968, I had the other side done. Same hospital stay. I had a set of twin boys bef re the first operation and another son before the next. Therefore, It was not easy. In 1973, after years of terrible pain, (the arthroplasty didn't work)I traveled to New York's Columbia Presbyterian Hospital and got a second opinion for a THR. At the t me I was only 30 years old and they didn't recommend that younger people get the operation. However, I went ahead and had it done by Dr. Richard Rothman and Dr. James Marvel. They did the second side the next year. Since they were successful at first, t was great. I did have a shortening though of one leg and wore a lift on my shoe. Through the years, I have had several things go wrong. I have had revisions and replacements on both sides. I am now in the care of Dr. Robert Booth (Formerly of the Ro hman Institute at Penna. Hospital). He is the greatest. My last time in the hospital was last March '98. The right side popped out and they put it back without surgery. Thank God! All in all I get around but I have to use two canes. I absolutely cann t walk without them. My gait is terrible. I have no trocanter muscles. My weight is against me at the time, I know that. I try to watch but you know how it is. I am striving to get back to healthy eating and doing exercises. It is just a matter of g tting started. Write back if any one is in the same boat, i.e. pain in back, neck, shoulder etc. I think the canes contribute to this. I am thankful, though, that the operations were good.

I really have to rack my mind to remember my story because it has been so long since my surguries. I even have to remember I have a hip replacement since mine has been so successful I don't even know it is there. I broke my hip with a spiral fracture to the neck of my left femur from a water skiing accident at age 20. They pinned my fracture with three huge pins and put me in traction for about 8 weeks. After about 6 months of recovery I left the doctor and he said you are all healed. Nobody told me about the possibility of AVN. Well, about one year after my surgery I started having pain in my hip so we went back to surgery to remove the pins, thinking that would eliminate my pain. Six months after my second surgery I started having more and worse pain so they did an X-ray and they saw the beginnings of AVN. I lived with it for awhile to see how bad it was going to get. It got so bad I couldn't stand for more than a few minutes and I had a very bad limp. Mind you I was only 22 years old. Having such a limp was not easy for a young college student. I finished college and decided I had to do something about my hip, I couldn't live like an eighty year old. So, I did the total hip replacement at UCSF in 1985 with the newest at the time, the cementless hip. The doctor told me he did not know how long it would last, all he could gaurentee was 5 years. Well, it has been 13 and half years and I have not been back. I worked for 10 years right after my surgery as a nuclear medicine technologist. With this job I was on my feet almost all the time. I just recently quit my job to stay home with my 11 month old baby. I worked my whole pregnancy with no problems on my hip. I also had a normal delivery with no problems. I often have to think twice to remember I have a hip replacement. I pretty much do all my normal activities, except skiing. I have to thank my lucky stars and pray that I get another 15 years out of this hip. I have a great attitude about my hip, I have never felt sorry for myself. I always push forward and don't let it get in my way. I hope there are just as many successful stories out there as mine.

Studied in England with Dr. Charnley, 1960's pioneer in hip replacements. Excel ent post-op rehab for a week in hospital. Internal Medicine doctor did his job well, checking blood clotting readings every day and revising thinnner dosages. Very important to avoid serious things happening. Good experience with medicare provided home rehab. Resumed twice per week water aerobics sessions at Long Beach State Univ. pool after surgeries. Also, kept twice per week warm pool "joints in motion" rehab classes going to keep partly atrophied hip muscle group loose. Waited a little too long f r surgery. Returned to leisure love, fly fishing in Yellowstone Park with family last summer. Back in circulation in almost all other activities. Feel fortunate and lucky.

THR 102098 (right); epidural removed on 3rd day. Only pain related to incision. Only pain medication after 4th day (went home on 5th) to help to sleep (never did prefer to sleep on back). Walker for four weeks; than cane for four weeks. Began driving with use of cane. Had 'anytime' aid of 'live in chore boy' (husband Walter). Did/do exercises religiously. No outside therapy. After 90 days, no limp, no problem (s). Still, when picking up off the floor, allow that right leg to swing backward. No cross ng legs at knee; no skiing (oh woe). By 120 days, the suture line is just a pencil mark (well, almost). Bette Johnson, Amarillo Texas.

I took prednisone for 6 years for inflamitory bowel problems. This, along with the joint problems that go with IBD, destroyed my hip joint. Had Avascular Necrosis. I had my first surgery (Hip resurfacing) in 1982 at the age of 26. Had to have it redone in 1994 (total hip replacement). At that time my bone was in very bad shape. Dr. said the top of the bone was just mush! He said he doesn't kn w if it can be redone again. Doing ok for now, except for other health problems. Surgeon was Dr. Robert D'Ambrosia with LSU who is now President of the American Academy of Orthop. Surgeons. So glad to find this group!

HI there: Am glad to find a site like this where people can relate to my story. I had a THR in 1984 and a revision in 1998. Recently had surgery to remove 5 sets of wires that had been holding my thigh bone together following the revision. Had a problem with developing a large hematoma a week later, and left a pint + of blood on the floor at work, and went to the ER in an ambulance. Not sure what happened, but am still having a lot of pain and problems with it. Has anyone else experienced this kind f thing.?I would like to join your discussion group.

I have managed to live an very active life with AVN for the past 22 1/2 years and finally this year my doctor said it's time. I had a serious car accident in 1976 which I was thrown out of the car and totaled out the left side of my body. Left hip was p nned. Doctor back then told me the worst that I would have would be arthritis. However, my ex-husband was a runner and in order to get back in shape, i began doing long distance running. (Ran the Honolulu Marathon in 1979.) Found out later what a dumb idea that was. Hind sight is definitely 20-20. I have been putting off doing the surgery, I said it was because I didn't want to give up downhill skiing and hoping that new technology would give THR a longer life, so that I would not have to have a revision later. However, it is time. May 5th is my ig day and I need more of an education of what to expect. So any info going into this would be helpful. The areas I am interested in is the best pre-op exercises and post op. I'm really interested in how quickly post op that I can do the water exercise .

3/27/99 Hi Linda, I just ran across your site tonight and I thought, wow this is great. Your guest book is all I've checked out so far but I'm going to try-out the rest as soon as I'm done here. I am lookin forward to it. By the way, I have never written-to, looked-at thought-about or ever even considered joining in on a discussion/chat room before - until tonight. Best Regards, Tom
