Iliopsoas Tendon released, now having different pain

I had a right THR Aug. 2011, and was having pain in my groin since November, 2012. After a bone scan, MRI and CT scan, it was determined that I had iliopsoas tendonitis. I ended up having an iliopsoas tendon release done 3 weeks ago, (8-29-13).
The pain has resolved, however, I am wondering how long the pain from the surgery will last? When putting pants on, I can only lift the leg about 2 inches and then I have terrible groin pain. If I am sitting, I can't lift the leg at all because of pain, so wearing socks is out of the question right now Surprised

Thank you for asking

I read your question and I understand your concern. its good that your pain is relieved. As far as surgery is concerned it's pain will subside eventually with in a few months. Range of mobility needs physiotherapy so get some exercises and do them regularly.

I hope it helps. Consult your doctor as our advice is just for education purposes only.

Take care
