Hi everyone, it has been some time since I posted on here but I do follow the topics and found them quite helpful. I am not sure if anyone remembers but some time ago I asked if any-one has got metal on metal hips and whether they had problems with them. I had metal on metal on metal hips in 2007 but over the past year or so they both had signs of failing. There has been a bit about this in the press as I am not the only one this has happened to. I have now had both hips revised, one about 3months ago and the other 4 weeks ago. My recovery has gone according to plan. I just wanted to say that if there are others out there that this has happened to I wish them a speedy recovery.

    Hello Barbara, hopefully your recovery is going to plan and as each day passes you are able to do more and feel less pain.....both op. pain and arthritis pain. My left hip is feeling pretty good, l stop the clot prevention meds today and what joy, l will be able to throw the stockings away next Friday!!!! :D
