    Hi Eileen, Thanks for responding! The u and ojo were errors. What I want to say is that in noticing some tenderness in the hip area. Its above the scar and when walking a little tenderness. Not very painful. The xrayrhe knee Dr took came back OK so, my question is do other people get this

    How long are they supposed to last? One is 14 years old and the other is 12. They get a little ouchy once in awhile, but hope they are good for life. I just had my 86th birthday and sure don't want any more surgery.

    I was wondering if anyone after two years starting getting tenderness above their hip replacement, not at scar but higher up where hip area is. My doctor was away so I saw my knee Dr. And he said it could be a bursea. There is tenderness but exray looks OK.
