Question muscle spasms after surgery

I'm 1 1/2 years post-op from total hip replacement and 40 years old. Ever since the surgery, I occasionally get debilitating muscle spasms in the thigh of the leg with the replacement. I've never had spasms before. Anyone else suffer from this? Is this common?

Re: muscle spasms after surgery

hello. i'm 4 years post op and do have some twitching in my legs (i've had both hips resurfaced). for myself, i wouldn't say it's muscle spasms, or debilitating, just twitching. it usually happens if i'm sitting on the sofa with my legs up, and it doesn't happen a lot but is something i've been aware of since my ops.
