I've had total hip replacements on both my hips. Most recent was on my right hip in Dec 2011. My right hip has been in some pretty severe pain over the past week now where I can't hardly even walk on it. The pain is located exactly where the new hip joint is located, its even sore to the touch. I think my new titanium hip joint may have came loose for whatever reason. Is there any signs that I would need to look for that might help me figure out what is happening in my right hip and why its so painful lately ?View Thread
