Osteoplasty/femeralplasty of the hip
Hi, i,m new on here so bear with me.
On the 4Th of December 2010 i had a osteoplasty (that's what it says on the consent form ) but others call it femoralplasty, i had the op to shave a bony bump on the femoral head.
My question is should i be on crutches 7 weeks on with pain ( 6 out of 10 ) and a heavy limp. my hip clunks and clicks and sharp pain in the groin and down my leg giving pins and needles in my foot, i cant walk without the crutches, i have done home physio.
I am on 300mg of gabapentin x 3 , 50mg of tramadol x 4 and paracetamol x8 all as per day.
Has anyone had the same procedure and what was their recovery time scale.
