A 62-year-old female asked:

Is it normal to have groin pain after hip replacement? 3 months out, a lot of groin pain. feels like it is at the iliac crest, a burning ache. bent leg/sitting worsens it. anterior approach. diflucan helped leg but not groin. pain prior to surgery

Not normal: Groin pain is a very common symptom of hip osteoarthritis and I wonder if you experienced it before hip replacement. I tend to think that your current discomfort is somehow related to the hip joint or surrounding structures. I don't see how diflucan, an antifungal medication, helped pain. See your orthopedic surgeon for evaluation and advice.
