Hi. I'm a 46 yr old female, had left THR 3-14-00. The reason I had it was due to severe and debilitating pain shooting down my leg, the result of osteoarthritis and childhood hip displaysia. The surgeon told me, after the surgery, that I had flattened out the head of the femur. The pain was a result of the nerves being compressed, mashed, who knows what else. I don't have the daily pain I had before the surgery but I still get bouts of pain that put me right down. And, how long before my normal walking gait comes back? Anyone know???
