Severe thigh pain after hip replacement unable to walk without violent pain will this settle down

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

How many weeks passed after hip replacement?

This is likely due to the nerve compression from the implant--a complication of the procedure.

May improve gradually over time.

Steroid and lidocaine injection may be tried along with physical therapy.

I had the replacement 2 years ago. Should I go back to the surgeon or to my Gp

You will need to discuss with your surgeon first.

Then a neurologist may need to be consulted with as well.

Best wishes
