    Hi feering46

    I would gather from what your doctor said was in the letter that there may possibly have been a mismatch of the prosthesis made at the time of the operation. If so, I am very sorry to hear that.

    The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.

    Oh Gosh Feering46!

    I am so sorry to hear that.

    Will your GP have made you an appointment to see the surgeon to discuss options?

    Ask your GP. (S)he should know.
