Hip resurfacing and groin pain

greenspun.com : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

I had my right femur resurfaced a year ago due to AVN and am planning to have the left femur resurfaced in a couple of weeks for the same reason. My concern is the pain in the hip flexor area and inner thigh after the surgery on the right hip. It's even beginning to occur in the left groin area now. I didn't experience this pain prior to the surgery a year ago. Prolonged standing and any amount of walking irritates it. The cause of the AVN is unknown.
