hip replacement

I had (have?) leg perthes disease. At age 49 i had a total hip replacement. It now hurts like before. Do I need another total? why does it hurt if there is no real bone? Can a repeat replacement work?

Re: hip replacement

I am not sure what you mean by there is no real bone...if i am not mistaken, a thr involves the removal of the femoral
head and then replacing it with another head and a long spike
that goes into the femoral bone. If there is pain, where does
it run in your hip or leg? It could be where the spike has been driven in the shaft of the femur. Go to doc and have
xray the hip and see what is wrong. Karen
