I have had my left hip replaced March 2000, followed all the therapy required and when I started walking again after 3 months I could not go without a cane. I have spent the last 3-4 months going from Phisio to lazer and others but it is now November and I still cannot straighten my leg, I still walk with canewithout the caneI limp terribly. First it was believed to be my knee but after repeated examinations it seems to be the muscles and ligamanets connected to the hip causing the leg to be a little bent. Since I did not have good movement I went qback tothe specialist this week and found that the new hip is surrounded by calcium deposits in the sloft tissue. The specialist or my doctor has never seen this before and at present don,t know what to do about it. Has anyone had these experiences, I would love to hear from you and get some advise. Thanks Cornelius at
