    Hip Replacement now bothering me after 4 years

    64 year old male, had hip replacement in 2012...Now after 4 years I am in pain again and the hip is "clicking"

    Has anyone had a replacement and now facing revision surgery. My ortho told me that the replacement he put in is the kind with a more moveable head that allows for more range of motion. I'm fearing dislocation but he doesnt seem to think that is what is happening.

    Will an MRI show anything or are my muscles supporting the replacement weak and should I go back to PT to build up my strength...AGAIN

    I meet with my ortho this week, but thought I'd put my question out there. Thanks

    meet with the PT to build up your muscle. I have had a hip replacement recall in me since December 2008. Everytime it gets to clicking or hurting I have to go in and retrain myself to use both hips and don't favor my replacement hip. Plus dont eat sugar, flour, wheat, or potatoes as that will trigger inflamation. (Some dairy-although thats hard for me to type being I am a dairy farmer from Wisconsin)
