Bleeding in thigh 2 years after total hip replacement

Help. I have been going back and fourth for 3 months trying to figure out why i have fluid build up in my thigh. After months of x-ray, MRI, ultrasound and dr visits they finally decided to aspirate it. It turned out that there was 22cc of blood sitting in my thigh. Could you explain what would cause this 2 years after my hip replacement please. Thank you

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Development of hematoma could be due to many reasons. It could be trauma from inside or due to some blood disorders. You need to consult your Orthopaedic surgeon and let them work you up for the cause. After that hematologist or a physician should look into it and find out other etiologies. Rest till then and hope for the best.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
