After stationery bike, r hip-femur joint pain. Now when standing n turn body backwards to r, electric shock feel at joint. Can recover on its own?

Maybe: In general: pain in the groin is either arthritis or a labral tear. Pain on the side of the hip is a bursitis. Pain at the "back pocket" is nerve related. An electric shock can be nerve symptoms, but at your age you may also have a bit of arthritis or a cartilage tear. I would get an evaluation by an orthopedic specialist. ...Read more

Are there any specific analgesics good for treating bursitis and femur/hip pain? Post-op 8 years femur repair with hardware.

Are there any specific analgesics good for treating bursitis and femur/hip pain? Post-op 8 years femur repair with hardware.

NSAIDS are good: Analgesics but it may aggravate your abdominal discomfort and barrett's esophagus. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is less effective but worth a try and less hard on your stomach. Narcotic meds (codeine, morphine, hydro and oxycodone ) can be used for severe pain. Best wishes! ...Read more

I need a reconstructive hip surgeon . I have had 2 thr's and 1 reconstructive surgery in the last 3 years. I need the other hip reconstructed. I have not had good luck with any of the 3 surgeries so far. All three have had complications. My femur did not

Reconstruction: After 3 orthopedic surgeries with poor results a specialist in recontruction (revision) surgery may be recommend. Many orthopedists have done fellowships in these types of surgeries and their resumes should be evaluated. There are also times when people have medical conditions that are not amenable to surgical intervention and prosthetic bracing with therapy may be indicated. ...Read more

How long does it take to recover from broken femur/hip surgery with INTERTROCHANTER nail?

How long does it take to recover from broken femur/hip surgery with INTERTROCHANTER nail?

Depends on age, bone: quality & any co morbidity the person has. If good non-osteoporotic bone & good hardware purchase & early weight bearing the fracture will heal the fastest. In the elderly with other medical problems @ poor bone quality, the time is quite longer. Everyone heals differently, so even to give you a range is not accurate without this knowledge. Picture is 1 of good bone & well fixated. ...Read more

When I broke both my femurs at 6, I was put in a hip-spica cast. When I break my femur now at 17+, would the same type of casting be used? (OI T1)

When I broke both my femurs at 6, I was put in a hip-spica cast. When I break my femur now at 17+, would the same type of casting be used? (OI T1)

No: You are right in that femur fractures in children are often treated with a spica cast, but adults are usually treated with some form of internal fixation. This usually is a rod, but other options are a plate or an external fixator based on fracture type. Spica casts are not usually used in an adult. ...Read more

I have really bad shooting pain in myright leg and constant in lower back and hip from a car acc. In 2011 from breaking my femur now its always restle?

Differentiate: Between post traumatic femur pain and back pain. You may have injured something in your lumbar spine as well that could be contributing to nerve irritation, lending itself to shooting pains and restlessness. A good physical exam should be able to tell you which it is or if its a combo of both. Ask your physician about treatment modalities from pt to medications such as Gabapentin which can help. ...Read more
