My hip was replaced in 2008, the surgeon said it was not the one that recalled. I did have a bad infection after my surgery and required a pic for a month and wound was opened, cleaned and had to be packed. After the surgery, I told my doctor that my hip was popping. He sent me for nuclear testing and everything was okay. Now my hip is popping and grinding so loud that anyone around me hears it. There is a little bit of pain. I have since moved out of the state, Va, where the surgery was performed. Do I need to see a doctor and if so, what kind?View Thread
