2 years post bilateral hip replacement-buttock pain

I had my hips replaced two years ago, six weeks apart, and have constantly been experiencing buttock pain on my left side, pretty much, all of the time, but especially after sitting or lying down. It does not matter what type of surface or chair I sit on. It is absolutely horrible, I am only able to sit for about 15 minutes at a time. It is mostly in the lower part of my left buttock and moves down to the top of my leg. Does anyone out there have any insight on this?

Re: 2 years post bilateral hip replacement-buttock pain

I'm afraid I don't have any great insights for you. But I also have extreme left buttock pain. I don't yet have a definite diagnosis for the cause but my hip is suspect. Docs tell me it is also possible that my piriformis muscle is causing the pain (piriformis syndrome). Also, the sacrioileac joint (SI joint) can cause buttock pain. I'm going to have an exploratory injection/block procedure this Monday, in fact, hoping to tease it out. On MRI my left hip shows only "minimal effusion". One of my docs clearly feels this isn't bad enough to explain my pain and limping. Another of my docs still feels the hip could be the cause. Anyway, that's my story. SQ
