Possible complications after THR?
Loki had a THR on the right hip last November. The procedure was cement less, and his post op recovery was uneventful.
About 1month ago he started limping and holding the leg up. I have rested him and he has had x-rays taken and sent to the specialist who did the procedure. Nothing unusual was found, and I was told to continue to observe, rest and see how it goes.
On Sunday I emailed the specialist, no response came back. I contacted the doctor who did the x-rays, and explained the situation (that specialist didn't make contact, and Loki is the same).
We decided to start Clindamyacin for 2-4 weeks to treat for possible infection to implant. His ACL appears fine, as well as everything else. My other thought was implant is loose.
Any thought? (What may not show up on X-ray).
The specialist is over 3 hours away, so the trip must be for a purpose, I work at a vets office so there are certain things I can do for him until a plan is in place.
Trying to think of options that I have with this as well (removal if bad, FHO, Etc).
