I am 65-years old. I had a total left hip replacement in 2011, with no complications. December 2014, I had a very bad fall, landing directly on my hip. Went to hospital and had x-rays. Said nothing was wrong. Since the fall, my leg is turning inward, I cannot sit for more than 15 minutes, I cannot use my leg to step up, and there is constant pain. I have fallen two more times since then - but landed on my right hip. But when I fell, I felt my left hip "giving out." Another x-ray. Again, said nothing was broken. What could be wrong, and how can I fix it?
