Thigh pain after total hip replacement (THR) has been reported by patients. As few as two percent and as many as 40 percent of THR patients have said they have thigh pain. There aren't a lot of studies on the problem.
According to a recent report patients with thigh pain have trouble with daily activities. They say it doesn't affect their overall quality of life any more than someone with a THR without thigh pain.
There may be a problem that can be fixed. Make an appointment with your orthopaedic surgeon to make sure the pain is coming from the implant. It could be caused by a low back or sacroiliac problem. If it is the implant, then revision surgery may be all that's needed to get you back on your feet and going at your regular speed.
