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.
