I am a 44 yr old caucadion male with a history of Leukemia (CML), treated with a Bone Marrow Transplant 8 years ago. Have extensive arthritis in my lover back as a result of treatment. Also had Intussusception 2 years ago.
Last two months present with stabbing upper left leg bone pain from the hip joint to and including the knee cap. Came on gradually, now I am limping from the discomfort and get sharp pain rolling over in bed, also getting in and out of a vehicle is impaired. Pain is 1 to 8 depending on how the leg is flexed.
Could this be failing hip joint due to damage from chemo and radiation. One of the transplant patients I met had a full hip and knee replacement due to this.

  • An internal medicine Dr. finally ex rayed me and found only a little arthritis. Another friend at work had the same exact symptoms and was told it was inflammation that didn't show up on tests. I was given something to alleviate that and it went away, never came back. I thought I needed a hip replacement it was so bad. Dr. thought it was some type of infection. Good luck!
