Arthritis of the hip.
Pain in left buttock
Don't know if anyone can help me....I have had 3 meniscus tear ops...which has left me with painful arthritis in both knees...however...for the last few weeks I have had very bad pain in my left buttock...could this be arthritis in my hip? ( or somewhere?)...my father had to have a hip replacement.
My problem is my GP seems to think it is cancer of lower GI (I had cancer of uterus op. in April & she's thinking it could have spread) and I am being fast tracked for cancer tests on by bowel on 19th of the month.....I don't think it is cancer as I haven't lost weight & have no bleeding.
The pain is dreadful after I have been stationary for a while...is this how arthritis of the hip is? Pleaseese help if you can!! I have had to put a frame by my bed for when I have to get out of bed...and when I have been sitting on a chair for a while the pain is bad getting up...but....after I have walked for a while the pain goes.
