I had a new total hip placed 9/1/06. Prior to surgery, for at least 8 - 10 months, I had a feeling of an orange sized (and sometimes larger) fullness in my groin. I needed a new hip due to a bone disease and we all thought the new hip would take care of the severe pain and fullness. Was I disappointed when it did not. Today - 10 weeks later - I have been diagnosed with meralgia paresthetica and told it is probably irreversible. By evening many nights pain is so severe I often drag my leg, the numbness is in my entire thigh. They tell me the entire nerve "cluster" is compromised. I don't know what to think or do. Please offer me any advice or words of wisdom.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
