Pain, stiffness after surgeries for HIP FRACTURES. XRAY.

Resolved Question:

In continuation to my previous consult, My mother had fractures and last week two surgeries were preformed,
One in the back and one on the left hip. Please review the X-rays before and after and give your opinion including the following:

0 – Is it normal to still have pain on the left leg even after 15 days of having the surgery of left hip replacement?

1- Were both surgeries successful?

2- If not can you please detail what is wrong?

3- The right side fracture was not touched. Will it heal by itself and if it does will my mother be able to use the right leg to walk?

4- If the right fracture heals wrong can she still walk and will the pain go away?

5- Is there less invasive or non-surgical way to fix it the right fracture?

6- if surgery is needed for the right fracture, how soon does it need to be done?

Please see the links to the x-rays bellow:

Hello,
It looks that there is partial subluxation of a cup in the left hip.It looks that your surgeon had done bipolar replacement arthroplasty.
The pain generally goes away after 10 days.Mild pain can be there due to muscle & bone weakness due to a long rest.
She should have some physiotherapy for relief.
The right side fracture will unite without any other treatment although surgeon treat it by surgery in a fresh case.
SHE MAY BE ABLE TO WALK BUT THERE MAY BE SOME PAIN.
Hope this will help you
