Metal on Metal hip problems

StuhbStuhb Posts: 17
Hi everyone,

Just wanted to know if anybody has had any metal on metal hip related problems ?

I had a Mcminn hip in 98 and just recently I've been informed there are issues with it. I was told that this sort of hip replacement would last a lifetime ?

I suppose my real concern is that it will have to come out. Ironically it was only discovered due to the other hip imminently needing to be replaced.

Have a great day :)
