2nd hip replacement
avatar
georgia888 posted:
I will soon be 55 & most likely will have my left hip replaced soon. I did ask the doctor about the life of a new hip (approx. 20 years) but neglected to ask about a second hip replacement should I live long enough to need one.

Can anyone comment?

Thank you,
georgia
