Questions about Hip replacement

Our experts have answered 6 questions about Hip replacement

If I had 2 blood clots on my lungs,...

If I had 2 blood clots on my lungs, which has now completely disappeared how soon can I have a total hip replacement?

To some extent it depends on why you had the clot and how bad your symptoms are. If you had a clot post surgery, you will probably be on anticoagulants for 6 months. Ideally, if you are not too bad wait until then.
If the clots were spontaneous, or you have a clotting abnormality then you may be on life long anticoagulation. If so the decision to proceed to hip replacement will depend on you symptoms and general health.
i hope this helps. I'm afraid it's rarely a black and white answe!

How serious it to have a hip revision...

How serious it to have a hip revision because first one is so painful?

If there is no obvious reason other than pain for revising the hip, then it is possible that the revision procedure will not give pain relief. This is because the initial diagnosis may have been wrong (i.e. pain was not from the hip), or you have developed regional pain syndrome or even sustained some nerve damage at time of initial surgery (a known complication).

Good reasons for revising a hip are infection, wear associated loosening, fracture around the replacement and repeated dislocation.

Without knowing all the history, it is difficult to counsel somebody but I would ask you to change your expectations regarding the procedure. You are of course entitled to getting a second opinion and I offer all my patients this if there are unexplained reasons for pain despite appropriate investigations.
