Squeaking hip / “edge loading”

My right THR was done in Nov 2020, ceramic on ceramic, with a superior capsular approach. Per the surgeon, there are no restrictions on my activity or movements. About 9 months post-surgery there would be a loud “squeak” when I would flex my hip (knee to chest). My sports medicine doc and pt strongly suggested an in-person evaluation by the surgeon. Per the surgeon and imaging, everything is fine; however, he said the noise is due to “edge loading”, a levering of the two parts of the prosthesis and that this edge loading should be avoided. I’ve been reading about the condition, it seems to be relatively rare. I freak out every time I hear that squeak because I don’t know the long-term implications. Has anyone else experienced this? Were you able to correct it? Importantly, what was the outcome?  Thank you for any insights.… (Click Here to View Full Post and Comments)
