With hip dislocation I had the most searing, intense pain I’ve ever felt; quivering of leg, spike in pain when any part of leg or foot was touched. This was not mild or moderate pain. I was initially given fentanyl followed shortly (15 minutes maybe) by Dilaudid. The combination of these two powerful drugs relieved only about 50 percent of the pain. Worst experience of my life!
