I have followed the advice to to the letter to protect my revised total hip replacement hip but still ended up in the A&E as my operated hip spontaneously dislocated while I was standing at the sink. It caused me to fall and hit a radiator (fortunately it survived)
I was stuck on the kitchen floor and couldn't move my operated leg because of the pain and spasms so finally agreed to speak to 999 and called an ambulance.
The X-ray showed the head was completely out of the socket and it was caught on the edge of the socket so I had to go to theatre yesterday after a very uncomfortable night to have it relocated, luckily without the need for an incision.
Has anyone else had this happen? as I'm worried it will happen again.
