I had a hip replacement in march. I fell & broke my femur 2 days after surgery the dr banded my femur but since the replacement I have had continuous excruciating pain in my joint. Any ideas as to what could be going on?

Seems your problem has nothing to do with the hip replacement,rather it is is the fall which has given rise to the new problem with the breaking of the femur bone.You need to follow the instructions given by the doctor so that there is rapid healing of the bone.At present, rest is the best remedy for you and after the complete healing of the fractured bone and the hip,you can decide to visit a chiropractor to help you in the physiotherapy process as well as keep the bones aligned to reduce your pain.
